A journey deep into this fascinating and unique organ, capable of the most extraordinary achievements and the darkest detours.

At the controls of the human body is one magnificently efficient pilot…our brain! Every second of our lives, it processes hundreds of bits of information, to cross a street, read a novel, have a discussion, eat, breathe. One hundred billion neurons synapse at lighting speed to bring us the most awesome, but also the most painful experiences.

What happens when the grey matter turns to dark thoughts? Stress, anxiety, language and motor problems, autism and Alzheimer's are among many conditions that could be caused by a malfunction between the ears. The uncharted territory of the brain is a subject of fascination for a wide range of specialists, and little by little, the neurons that compose it are revealing some of their secrets!

An exhibition designed and produced by Musée de la civilisation, with the collaboration of Musée Armand-Frappier. Presented by CERVO Brain Research Centre of CIUSSS de la Capitale-Nationale, with the participation of Fairmont Le Chateau Frontenac, the exhibition's official hotel, and the daily newspaper Le Soleil.CERVO Brain research center, Musée Armand-Frappier, LeSoleil et Fairmont le Château Frontenac
