All the secrets of human consciousness may be embedded somewhere in the squishy brains nestled in our skulls. This drive to find out what’s hidden in our mental anatomy has resulted in medical specimen collections of brains all over the world. The Wilder Brain Collection in Ithaca, New York, has around 70 brains; the Cushing Brain Collection in New Haven, Connecticut, has around 550. But this is nothing compared to the around 3,300 brains kept at the Brain Museum in Lima.
Green discoloration of the lower abdomen, due to overgrowth of colonic bacteria during the putrefaction stage. Putrefaction is the process by which tissue is destroyed primarily through bacterial proliferation, which occurs soon after death. The first evidence of putrefaction is the development of a greenish discoloration to the skin usually in the lower right abdominal quadrant, although occasionally you may see it develop simultaneously or initially in the peri-umbilical or left lower abdominal regions. This is typically seen between 36 to 72 hours following death at a temperature of approximately 70 ˚F.
