The Walk-In Brain Model

The brain remains a mysterious organ. However, brain research has progressed immensely within the last few years. We are able to analyse and simulate processes in a single neuron (neutron) in computer models. About 100 billion nervous cells communicate accurately with each other via nerve fibres (neuritis and dendrites) in milliseconds. If this is not the case, it can cause or contribute to a functional disorder or mental illness.

Once you know the fundamentals of the brain, illnesses like Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s, schizophrenia or depression will be able to be understood and treated better.

The Brain Model Shows

The walk-in brain model shows outer and inner areas of some basic functions and several pathological conditions in this highly complex organ. With the help of an integrated control panel, you can visualise the areas of sensitivity, motoric, visual skills and those of speech production and understanding tangibly. Symptomatic occurrence of epileptic shocks due to a tumour in the frontal lobe – nerve cells surrounding the tumour suddenly become active as a reaction to the tumourous “foreign substance” – are marked by LED flash lights.

Entering the brain model, the visitor can identify benign and malign changes inside. Tumours in the pineal and pituitary glands, in the frontal lobe are displayed as well as inflammatory “plaques” seats symptomized for Alzheimer’s dementia and multiple sclerosis.
