Brain: The Inside Story

Drawing on the most current research and technology, this exhibition presents the latest in neuroscience, highlighting the brain’s surprising ability to rewire itself in response to experience, disability, or trauma, and showcases new technologies that researchers use to study the brain.

Interactives, puzzles, brain-scan imaging, and spectacular models explore senses, emotions, thoughts, brain development, even brains in the future. From a real plastinated brain to dazzling art installations revealing our own perceptions, this exhibition comes alive with fascinating discussions of how our minds work.
