An electric cable connected to a headboard, produced in 1966 and used in experiments measuring stimulus and responses of the brain, is seen at an exhibition at the Wellcome Collection in London March 27, 2012. We've pickled it, dessicated it, drilled it, mummified it, chopped it and sliced it over centuries, yet as the most complex entity in the known universe, the human brain remains a mysterious fascination. With samples of Albert Einstein's preserved brain on slides, and specimens from other famous and infamous heads such as the English mathematician Charles Babbage and notorious mass murderer William Burke, an exhibition opening in London this week is seeking to tap into that intrigue.

Head of Turkey's Religious Affairs Directorate Ali Bardakoglu (R) welcomes Pope Benedict XVI in Ankara November 28, 2006. Pope Benedict sets off on Tuesday on one of the most delicate trips by a Pontiff, visiting Turkey, where resentment is seething over his comments on Islam. The visit by the leader of 1.1 billion Roman Catholics was originally intended to be a pre-eminently Christian event centred around a meeting with the Istanbul-based head of the world's 250 million Orthodox Christians.

Sabarang Srolay, 76 year old blessing on a traditional win for a party celebration to wellcome the family union. Sabarang Srolay and her two grand daughters sit in Krola village in Ratanikiri province, 320 km (198 miles) from the Cambodian capital Phnom Penh, December 4, 2004. Four Khmer Rouge families have emerged from the jungles after fleeing the Vietnamese invasion which toppled the Pol Pot regime, officials said on Thursday. The group - which expanded from 12 to 34 during their years in the northeastern jungles - had avoided human contact in the belief they would be killed if Vietnamese troops found them.
