I've always enjoyed a variety of foods, and had a natural "nose to tail" sense even when young, but I've never attempted to eat brain or nerves.
I cooked a delicious whole, local fresh rabbit* the other night for my fiance and I, and we ate the legs for dinner, and we split the rest for lunch.
I ended up with the spine in my chest&back piece. As I finished the meat, some of the backbone broke free, revealing the spine. I extracted it whole, and thought "hrmmm..." and ate it. I can't say it was any better than the meat I ate, or particularly amazing. It vaguely reminded me of soft-but-still-firm marrow.
Are there any perks or perils to eating nerves or grey matter? I cannot find a thing on google about eating spinal cord, let alone any sort of nutritional info.
