Phineas Gage, a railroad construction foreman, was blasting rock near Cavendish, Vermont, in 1848 when a 13-pound iron rod was shot through his brain. Miraculously, he survived to live another 11 years & become a textbook case in brain science. At the time, Phineas Gage seemed to completely recover from his accident. He could walk, talk, work, & travel, but he was changed. Gage “was no longer Gage,” said his Vermont doctor, meaning that the old Phineas was dependable & well liked. The new Phineas was crude & unpredictable. His case astonished doctors in his day, & still fascinates doctors today. What happened & what didn’t happen inside the brain of Phineas Gage will tell you a lot about how your brain works & how you act human. Young adult aud. Ill.
