Description

An exhibition about the brain – the most complex and least understood part of the body – and the journey to map its intricate connections.

Hello Brain! explores the brain's ‘connectome’: how trillions of connections between billions of cells – more than there are stars in the sky – shape our thoughts, behaviours and experiences. Crick scientists are aiming to understand how these connections impact how different species, including humans, interact with each other and the world.

Through a sensory journey from the early beginnings of neuroscience to recent discoveries and technological progress, and exploring key themes such as sleep, pregnancy, old age, and perception, visitors will be invited to consider:

What makes us unique, and what makes us human?

How does our brain change throughout our life?

Do we all perceive reality in the same way?

To increase access to Hello Brain!, access resources such as large print, Braille and Easy-Read materials will be provided within the exhibition and online, as well as tactile displays. In addition, British Sign Language and Audio Described tours will be available.
