BRAIN: The Inside Story at the Ontario Science Centre

From now until March 29, 2015, neurons of all ages are invited to explore the amazing, ever-changing brain by embarking on an adventure of 'mass' proportions at the Ontario Science Centre with their newest exhibit BRAIN: The Inside Story. Learn about the bundle of neurons that form the human brain and how this control centre is connected to our thoughts, senses and feelings. As you enter the exhibit, you will walk through a forest of tangled wires and flashing lights that illustrate the numerous firing synapses inside the brain. 

BRAIN: The Inside Story - a model

Once inside you will be able to watch an introductory video projected on a giant brain model and learn about the various areas and functions of the brain. Test your knowledge of parts of the brain and reassemble a model at an interactive booth.

And learn all about how the brain organizes the visual world. The Mona Lisa above, made up entirely of spools of string, was by far my favourite part of the exhibit.

  16. Love the OSC! We took the kids last March Break for the first time since they were small enough to play in the littles' area! They were much more interested and engaged this time! And it wasn't too crowded because there was a snowstorm brewing outside!
