North Arkansas Regional Medical Center is hosting Arkansas Saves Mega Brain this week. NARMC staff members are giving tours of the inflatable brain October 9 and 10.
The large inflatable brain is approximately 18 feet long by 14 feed wide by 12 feed high. Students stepped inside the replica of the human brain and were able to see first-hand what disease and trauma can do to the brain. Visitors enter the exhibit through the frontal lobe, which is responsible for personality and higher cognitive functions, and exit through the cerebellum, the portion of the brain that controls balance and coordination.
The Mega Brain is a fun and educational experience.
