The exhibition BRAIN. Il Cervello, Istruzioni per l’Uso (The Brain, Instructions for Use) at the Museo Civico di Storia Naturale in Milan aims to enhance and deepen the visitors’ understanding of the brain and its functions.
The human brain – the result of millions of years of evolution – uses molecular, chemical, and electrical signals to interpret information, weigh decisions, and learn at every stage of life. Drawing on 21st-century research and technology, BRAIN. Il Cervello, Istruzioni per l’Uso offers visitors 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 brings visitors up to date on the latest in neuroscience, highlighting the brain’s surprising ability to rewire itself in response to experience, disability, or trauma, and showcases new technologies that researchers use to study the brain and treat conditions such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease.
The BRAIN exhibition is organised by the American Museum of Natural History in New York (under the original title Brain: The Inside Story) in association with the Comune di Milano.
