MORE INFOWas Einstein’s brain bigger? What brain disorder afflicted Abraham Lincoln? Is there a fine line between genius and mental illness? Using innovative special effects, hands-on learning activities, video games, optical illusions, and interactive displays, BRAIN: The World Inside Your Head shows how the brain functions and how, like other parts of the body, it can sometimes malfunction. Upon entry into the exhibit, visitors walk through a shimmering tunnel of flashing fiber-optics that illuminates networks of neurons firing and communicating. From this dynamic beginning, BRAIN: The World Inside Your Head invites guests deeper into the brain to discover its basic workings. Trace the brain’s development from infancy through old age, learn the evolution of scientists’ understanding of the brain’s physiology and study the re-created skull of Phineas Gage — a man who survived after his brain was pierced by a metal rod. Discover the reality of brain disorders, injuries, and irregularities, and learn more about conditions such as Alzheimer's, depression, and addiction as you explore the relationship between depression and creativity, how drugs work in the brain, and the nature of pain. Finally, you will get a glimpse of the future of brain treatments in the new era of genome mapping and molecular medicine.Made possible by Pfizer Inc and produced by Evergreen Exhibitions in collaboration with the National Institutes of Health, BRAIN: The World Inside Your Head began its run at the Smithsonian and has been touring to select cities in North America. The Health Museum will host the traveling exhibit BRAIN: The World Inside Your Head from Saturday, May 29, 2021, to September 6, 2021 at 1515 Hermann Dr, Houston, Texas 77004.
