The Phillip and Patricia Frost Museum of Science, 1101 Biscayne Blvd., is featuring “Brain: The Inside Story” which opened on Saturday, Oct. 7, located in the Hsiao Family Special Exhibition Gallery.
The traveling exhibition invites guests to explore how the human brain has evolved, how it works and how it makes us human. Drawing on 21st-Century research and technology, “Brain: The Inside Story” offers guests a new perspective and keen insight into their own brains through imaginative art, vivid brain-scan imaging and dynamic interactive exhibits for all ages.
The exhibition engages guests with recent neuroscience research, highlighting the brain’s surprising ability to rewire itself in response to experience, disability, or trauma, and showcases technologies that researchers use to study the brain and treat conditions such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. How does your brain grow and change over time? How do we study the brain? How does it work?
“Brain: The Inside Story” is organized by the American Museum of Natural History, New York (www.amnh.org), in collaboration with Codice. Idee per la cultura, Torino, Italy in association with Comune di Milano – Assessorato Cultura, Italy; Guangdong Science Center, Guangzhou, China; and Parque de las Ciencias, Granada, Spain.
“Brain: The Inside Story” runs through Apr. 15 at Frost Science. Admission is complimentary with museum tickets. More information is available at frostscience.org/brain.
