The OHSU Brain Institute is pleased to announce it is the presenting sponsor of BODY WORLDS & the Brain.  

Making its Pacific Northwest debut at OMSI, the exhibit opened October 20, 2011, and runs through March 4, 2012. This fascinating exhibition presents the human body and brain as amazing, anatomical and evolutionary feats. Individual and whole-body specimens donated to Dr. von Hagens' Institute for Plastination are preserved through his revolutionary process of Plastination to give visitors an opportunity to better understand the human body. BODY WORLDS is a practice in preventive medicine -- it teaches visitors that the body is so fragile and vulnerable, and yet so resilient and forgiving. Visit www.omsi.edu for more information.
