Brain: The Inside Story
Time Out Ratings<strong>Rating: </strong>1/5
Peter Pan encouraged kids to think lovely thoughts; "Brain: The Inside Story," a new exhibit at the American Museum of Natural History, takes that directive further. The display challenges children to think lovely thoughts...about thinking. At the Brain Puzzle station (pictured), youngsters assemble a model starting with the areas that control basic functions, and then add regions that facilitate complex operations, such as remembering, feeling emotions and planning ahead. Speaking of which: The exhibition opens Saturday, November 20.—Julia Edelstein
