伊 폼페이에서 2천년간 손상되지 않은 인간 뇌세포 발견
Researchers in Italy have found preserved brain cells in a two-thousand-year-old brain, that belonged to a victim of the Mount Vesuvius eruption.
The devastating volcanic eruption in the first century AD led to the deaths of thousands of people in the ancient Roman city of Pompeii and nearby towns.
Scientists believe the brain belonged to a 25-year old man, who died lying in bed.
Experts say sudden transformation from liquid to glass caused by abrupt cooling after intense heating has kept the man's brain intact.
The groundbreaking discovery was published in the journal 'PLOS One'.
