Event Details

Brain: The World Inside Your Head literally takes you inside the head to probe the geography of a giant brain and stand in the midst of the brain’s constant electrical brainstorm as thoughts and sensations are generated.

Walk through a setup of neurons in the human brain. Visitors will see comparisons between the human brain and animal brains, learn about brain development and sleep, and see the reality of brain differences.

Visitors will also explore the relationship between depression and creativity, how drugs work in the brain, and the nature of pain. They will encounter the future of brain treatments in our new era of genome mapping and molecular medicine. And, finally, visitors will explore the most mysterious aspect of brain investigations, the mind and the nature of consciousness.
