From a real plastinated brain to dazzling art installations, Brain: The Inside Story comes alive with fascinating discussions of how our minds work. 

Brain: The Inside Story highlights the brain's surprising ability to rewire itself in response to experience, disability, or trauma, and showcases the technologies that researchers use to study the brain.


Numerous interactives, puzzles, brain-scan images, and spectacular models explore human senses, emotions, thoughts, brain development, and even our brains in the future.
