Brains: The Mind as Matter
This exhibition asks not what brains do for us, but what we have done to brains in the name of medical intervention, scientific enquiry, cultural meaning and technological change.
On display for the first time outside London, Wellcome Collection's hugely popular exhibition comes to MOSI, featuring previously unseen objects and artworks which explore Manchester's contribution to understanding the brain.
Find out more about the exhibition, and take a look at some of the objects and artworks on display.
Brains is FREE and open 10am - 5pm every day, from 26 July 2013 to 4 January 2014. Here's some useful information to help you plan your visit to MOSI.
Play Wellcome Collection's FREE online game. Try to make as many of the brain's 100 trillion connections as you can, and grow your neuron as long as possible.
Follow Brains on Tumblr for images of the brain in art, history and popular culture, and submit images of the brain that you want to share with the world.
Watch a short documentary filmed at Hammersmith Hospital, in which donated human brains are dissected and stored in a tissue bank for research into neurological diseases.
This exhibition contains material of a sensitive nature, including human remains. Age recommendation 14+.
