A scientist examined Einstein's preserved brain during the 90s and discovered that the area where people process mathematics was around 4 times larger than normal. The area for social processing that sits next to it was reduced by a considerable amount.

While I can't remember the source or who the scientist was, the article struck me as going a long way in explaining how he could revolutionize physics on the one hand and how he could also be a bit socially awkward on the other.
