This still shows a brain being weighed. The scene seems to indicate the brain was just removed. Tell us why that couldn’t be. (Image from iZombie).

Tonya WalkerDoesn’t the brain need to soak in formaldehyde for 2 weeks because it’s so soft it can fall apart?

Sonya DaguinsinIs it because the brain is so loosely gelatinous when it is "fresh"

Aby OrdoñezIt seems too stable. Isn’t a brain super soft that when you hold for too long it ends up getting dents?? Autopsy Center of Chicago

Betsy KopkoWell…technically it isn’t being weighed. She is holding it. If it was being weighed it would be on the scale.

Autopsy Center of ChicagoFor a procedure with such bloody gloves, you’ld expect more blood on the brain. Also – yes a fresh brain is quite soft so you’ld have to support it underneath. Great answers.
