Most people are amazed that a bumpy 3-pound organ the size of a small cantaloupe can not only direct the functions of our bodies but also control how new things are learned and retained as memories.
Thanks to new technology and expanded thinking about the physical brain, neuroscientists are sharing discoveries every day that have insights for teaching and learning. MOTAL participants will have access to up-to-date information and exciting interactive experiences that help make a visit to the Brain Exhibit a very memorable experience.
In the center of the Rotunda of the Brain, guests will experience the two-story brain, walking through the two halves of the brain. There they will see how parts of the brain work—we think—and find out important things about how to enhance their functioning.
Another section of this exhibit that features how to remember will attract people of all ages to its various learning stations. Nearby, a gigantic but accurate model of the outside of the brain will allow for climbing and hands-on examination of the brain’s fissures.
