SYRACUSE, N.Y. — The Milton J. Rubenstein Museum of Science & Technology (MOST) will welcome a visiting exhibit — BRAIN: The World Inside Your Head — this fall.

The MOST has a formal opening set for Sept. 21, per a museum news release.

The exhibit is presented by Upstate Medical University and supporting sponsor Circare of Syracuse. Nationally, the exhibit is made possible by Pfizer (NYSE: PFE), a pharmaceutical company.

BRAIN: The World Inside Your Head provides a “hands-on and up-close look at the human body’s most essential and fascinating organ,” the MOST said. The exhibit allows visitors to explore “all facets” of the brain, including its development, geography, and function. In the process, the exhibit makes brain-related disorders easier to understand, it added.

“Upstate is delighted to participate in this innovative exhibit - especially as our own activities related to the brain and brain health are found across our mission of education, research and patient care,” Dr. Mantosh Dewan, interim president of SUNY Upstate Medical University, said in the release. “We also are pleased that we will be able to support STEM education for the children in the City schools and all the others who come to the MOST.” STEM is short for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.

Designed to “appeal to audiences of all ages,” the exhibit employs special effects, 3-D reproductions, virtual reality, hands-on learning activities, and interactive technology to delve into the inner workings of the brain, including its processes, potentials, and mysteries.
