100 Brains Go Missing From University of Texas

Yesterday making headlines there was a story proclaiming 100 brains mysteriously went missing from the University of Texas at Austin. These specimens were stored in the basement of the Animal Resources Center. Rumors were pranksters had stolen the brains over the years, as they had been in storage since the 1990s.


Real brains, from the book “Malformed: Forgotten Brains of the Texas State Mental Hospital,” showing the kind of specimens missing from the University of Texas at Austin. (New York Times)

Interested in brains? Buy some from Dapper Cadaver! We make a life-size prop brain which looks just like the real thing. We’ve also got budget brains and if you’re looking for something ultra realistic we sell sheep brains in specimen jars.


Lifesize Brain, Foam Rubber $55


Brain Prop, Medium $10.50


Specimen Jar, 32oz, Sheep Brain $35

Today the New York Times released an article stating the brains had been disposed of in 2002. Some are still skeptical and “the university will investigate why some of the specimens were disposed of and how all of them had been handled since the university received the collection” (New York Times).
