Think artists are right-brained and scientists are left-brained? Think again! We want YOU to tell us what your brain looks like!

Join neuroscientists and Unruly Art team members from the Sinha Lab at MIT for a sensory-friendly art project. Using fun materials and techniques, create a picture of your unique brain. Kids will learn about the parts of their brain they use for talking, listening, moving, and being creative!

Scientists will be offering brief demonstrations of electroencephalography (EEG) experiments and short presentations about autism research for parents. Work by local artists with autism will also be on display.
