Organized by the American Museum of Natural History, Brain: The Inside Story investigates the remarkable organ
that controls every function of our life. Right now your brain
is ignoring thousands of sights and sounds to zero in on a specific few, processing information as small as the meaning
of a letter, forming new memories, and keeping your heart pumping. But how does the brain do it all?
Brain: The Inside Story explores the way the human brain works, specifically as it relates to senses (Your Sensing Brain), emotions (Your Emotional Brain), thoughts (Your Thinking Brain), how the brain ages (Your Changing Brain), and how technological advances may change our brains in the future (Your 21st Century Brain).
