I'll admit, my first thought when I saw this piece by Sam Kean at Slate was, "Not another Phineas Gage story." But the piece is really worth a read, even if you've heard the story before. Kean gets deeper into the historical records, including details I'd never heard and providing a clearer picture of why this case matters to neuroscience.
