First Fridays at Becker: 'The Brain'

Friday, June 4 | 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

See how our perception of the brain evolved over 500 years from illustrations in 10 rare books printed from 1496 to 1896.

We'll be displaying the earliest illustrations of the brain in the Becker Library collection from the 1490s to see how the idea of brain localization arose and evolved into our current understanding of mental processes.

Registration is not required. Simply join us on Zoom on June 4 at 2 p.m.
