Wherever you go, whatever you do, the world stirs your senses. It is there in the sparkle of fireworks, the flavor of watermelon, the crack of a baseball bat and the scent of summer rain. Sensations like these may seem to come to you automatically. But you only perceive them thanks to an intricate chain reaction of signals inside your brain. The exhibition, Brain: The Inside Story, which is on view at the American Museum of Natural History from Saturday, November 20, until August 14, 2011, 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.
