2. Gallery Trail (Self-Guided)

*Only for weekday school groups

Venue: Tuning in: Brain and Body Exhibition
Recommended duration: 30 -50 min (Trail booklet provided)

If we line up all the neurons in our brain, it will stretch to about 1000 km! That is longer than travelling from one end of Singapore to the other. These cells are one of the crucial component in helping us to understand and interact with our surroundings. Yet, while we understand how neurons fire up signals to exchange information, the intricacies of the connections to allow us to process information still baffle scientists.

Join us in our gallery trail that will bring you through the sections of “Tuning in: Brain and Body” exhibition as we learn about the brain and advances in neural research.

1. Your thinking brain
2. Your 21st century brain
3. Your changing brain
4. Your emotional brain
5. Your sensing brain

The self-exploratory nature of this exhibition allows participants to interact and play with the exhibits. Explanations are provided through our complementary panels and our Brain Explora mobile app.

Venue: DNA Laboratories
