What’s more important than your brain? This quintessential organic computer is responsible for every thought, every motion, and every response your body makes. Life itself is determined by brain activity. It defines the very essence of being human. With credentials like these, it’s no wonder that the brain is the subject of Evergreen Exhibitions’ blockbuster touring exhibit, BRAIN: THE WORLD INSIDE YOUR HEAD. Designed to appeal to audiences of all ages, BRAIN employs innovative special effects, 3-D reproductions, hands-on learning activities, and interactive technology to delve into the inner workings of the brain, including its processes, potentials, and mysteries. Sponsored by Pfizer Inc, BRAIN literally takes you inside the head. Probe the geography of a giant brain. Stand in the midst of the brain’s constant electrical brainstorm as thoughts and sensations are generated. Along the special journey, visitors will discover how the brain learns and thinks. They’ll learn the secrets of sleep and dreams and the dangers, causes, and cures of disorders, diseases, and mental illnesses. Plus, the exhibit takes visitors into the future of medical and technological exploration of the brain.
