At your next health fair, an inflatable brain exhibit is imperative. A brain exhibit is the best way to show children and adults of all ages how the complex human brain works. Visitors to the AmeriBrain inflatable exhibit can touch all parts of the brain. There are two types of strokes: ischemic stroke and hemorrhagic stroke. The ischemic stroke has a clot in the vessel that people can actually touch. The hermorrhagic stroke shows a burst vessel with blood inside the brain.

There is also an aneurysm that visitors can touch inside the brain exhibit. The aneurysm is located in the Circle of Willis, the arteries which supply blood to the brain.

Inside and outside the brain exhibit brain cancer is displayed. Brain cancer is a difficult cancer to fight inside the brain as the brain is such an important part of the human body. The AmeriBrain shows various types of brain cancer: astrocytomas, glioblastoma, meningioma, and more.

Aside from strokes and cancer, a brain exhibit should have information about epilepsy and seizures. The AmeriBrain uses a light display to show how a normal neuron fires and how an epileptic neuron fires.

One of our partners is Epilepsy Awareness Day at Disneyland. This organization puts on a giant education expo for parents, patients and the medical community in hopes of beating epilepsy. The day after the expo, all the parents and children go to Disneyland. Over 5000 people converge on Disneyland each year.

The brain is an amazing learning tool. The AmeriBrain exhibit displays color coded sections to show different parts of the brain. One part of the brain we focus on is the frontal cortex. In this area we show a black bruise to show a traumatic brain injury. An inflatable brain exhibit is a good way to teach children the importance of helmets for head safety. Other areas of the exhibit show speech, movement, pain response, and more.
