The weight of a brain is about three pounds or 1.4 kg. But with this seemingly hindering lightness of mass it can still compose a symphony or invent an engine, causing it to be regarded as the most complicated and mysterious bodily organ. As of Nov. 20, a science show exploring the secrets of the brain is being held at the Guangdong Science Center.

The exhibition was developed cooperatively by the Guangdong Science Center, American Museum of Natural History, Ideas for Culture and collaboration with the International City of Milan, Assessorato Cultura in Italy as well as Parque de las Ciencias (Park of the Senses) in Spain. During its display at the American Museum of Natural History, over 400,000 people participated. Guangzhou is the first stop of the show's tour outside of the U.S..

Through puzzles, games, images, models and installations, the show which covers an area of 1, 600 sq. m tells how the brain works to remember things, learn knowledge, recognize roads and re-act to emotions. All the subtitles of the introduction are bilingual in Chinese and English.
