Brain of the month. 2003 physics Nobel Prize-winner Anthony Leggett—and his brain—appear as Mr. January in a new calendar produced by the Beckman Institute for Advanced Science and Technology at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign.” Big Brains on Campus” features a dozen staff members to showcase the institute's magnetic resonance imaging resources. The image of Leggett's brain highlights his cerebral cortex, a potential wellspring of his ingenuity. A scan of women's basketball coach Theresa Grentz, Ms. March, zooms in on her limbic system, a possible source of her passion for the game. See www.beckman.uiuc.edu/bigbrains.html
