His liver, lungs, kidneys, and heart were all lined up on a table. he cut open Einsteins head and cut his skull in half. he used a chisel and mallet to take his brain out. Harvey removed Einsteins brain but he wasn't suppose to. Harvey weighed the brain and it weighed 2.7 pounds which is less than the average brain.
