New exhibit features donated human brain

A new gallery of 50-plus interactive exhibits exploring the human body opens Friday in the UK.

The exhibits explore cardiovascular systems, reproduction, locomotion, senses, digestion, DNA and the brain. According to the museum, they are designed to give hands-on insight into how the body works.

Select exhibits will even allow visitors to explore their own bodies. 'Sound Bite' lets you listen to music through the vibrations of bones in your jaw by biting down on a plastic straw. 'Vein Viewer' allows you to see the veins in your own hands under near-infrared light.

Clare Matterson, Director of Medical Humanities & Engagement at the Wellcome Trust, said: "We hope this new exhibition will make people look at their bodies with fresh eyes, and gain some insight to how scientists are trying to understand what is going on in there."
