Phineas Gage brain reconstruction. Computer models of the brain of Phineas Gage (1823-1860), an American railroad construction foreman. On September 13, 1848, a rod impaled Gage's skull through his head, destroying much of his brain's left frontal lobe. He survived the injury but his personality and behaviour were profoundly changed. Due to the precise localisation of this injury, Gage's case has been used in numerous psychological studies to examine the functions of this brain region.
