Washington, D.C., Dec. 30 (ANI): Neurosurgeon and scientist Dr. Michael Cusimano of St. Michael’s Hospital has claimed that James Bond’s nemesis in his most recent film ‘Spectre’ may have most likely failed in the subject of neuroanatomy.
Researchers from St. Michael’s Hospital believed that Ernst Stavro Blofeld, played by Christoph Waltz, tortured the famed hero using restraints and a head clamp system fused with a robotic drill, intending to first inflict pain and then erase 007’s memory bank of faces.
Lead researcher Dr. Cusimano said aiming to erase Bond’s memory of faces, the villain correctly identified the lateral fusiform gyrus as an area of the brain responsible for recognizing faces.
“But in practice, the drill was placed in the wrong area, where it likely would have triggered a stroke or massive hemorrhage,” he added.
Notably, the ‘Spectre’ opened to global success, breaking box office records in November 2015.
