Video Clips from "Brain Show"

Seeing Light

Light from a flame travels through the lens in the iris of the eye. Once an eye cell receives the light, that information is passed from one cell to the next, coding what we see. The last layer of the retina sends the information as signals, to the brain. Passing through layer after layer of neurons,  by travelling down their long axon, the light is absorbed by the last neuron layer. All of these layers make up a neural network, which sorts out the important information.

Brain Zoom

Discover the scale of the elements of the nervous system in this movie clip as we travel from outside the human body to a neuron cell.
The "Brain Show" was orginally produced as an interactive planetarium show, where the audience collaborated to determine the level of zoom.
