Image of the Day: Our incredible brains

London's Wellcome Collection has an awesome exhibit starting today through June 17: It's all about brains! The image above is a corrosion cast of blood vessels in the brain from the 1980s.

But this resin model is just one of the many items on display:

Our major new free exhibition seeks to explore what humans have done to brains in the name of medical intervention, scientific enquiry, cultural meaning and technological change.

Featuring over 150 artefacts including real brains, artworks, manuscripts, artefacts, videos and photography, 'Brains' follows the long quest to manipulate and decipher the most unique and mysterious of human organs, whose secrets continue to confound and inspire.

'Brains' asks not what brains do to us, but what we have done to brains, focusing on the bodily presence of the organ rather than investigating the neuroscience of the mind.
