Exhibits, activities and real brains bring neuroscience to life for visitors of all ages. As part of NYC Brain Awareness Week, scientists and NYSCI Explainers describe the brain’s different parts, demonstrate how it allows us to sense our environment and control our muscles, and discover similarities between human and animal cognition.
Recommended for ages 4 and older. Free with NYSCI admission.
BraiNY includes events citywide for all ages. Check out the calendar at comebebraiNY.com
