Brain: The Inside Story

Brain: The Inside Story
Event on 2016-04-22 10:00:00
Brain: The Inside Story, a compelling exhibition with dozens of interactive displays, puzzles and games that teach visitors about the complex human brain, will open at the Museum at Prairiefire Saturday, March 5, and run through Sunday, Aug. 28. Organized by the American Museum of Natural History in New York City, the exhibition draws on 21st-century research and technology to give visitors new perspectives and insights into their own brains through imaginative art, vivid brain-scan imaging and dynamic, engaging activities.

After visitors view an actual preserved brain, a modest, three-pound white mass, they can view its massive capabilities through a dramatic, 6-foot-tall human figure with abnormal proportion that highlights how much of the brain is devoted to the sense of touch in different parts of the body. From the big picture to the finite, a glowing 8-foot-tall model of the subcortical brain (the region that includes evolutionarily “older” parts like the brain stem and cerebellum) shows how it processes language, memory and decision-making.
