Brain: The World Inside Your Head Showing January 20 - May 6, 2018

What’s more important than your brain? The quintessential organic computer is responsible for every thought, every motion, and every response your body makes. Life itself is made possible by brain activity. Discover the brain's basic workings–the fact that all brain function, everything we are and do, begins with neurons and synapses, electricity and chemistry.
