A giant inflatable brain will be on display at Princeton Hospital and the Galleria for three days this week, offering visitors the chance to get an up-close look at the various parts of the human brain. Clinical professionals will also offer free stroke assessments during the "Ameri-Brain's" two-day exhibit in the Galleria this Friday and Saturday.
Princteon Baptist Medical Center has been recognized with an Advanced Certification for Primary Stroke and is the first Birmingham hospital to receive this honor, according to spokesperson Jennifer Dodd. As part of the honor, the hospital gets to host the "Ameri-Brain," a model of the human brain that measures 16 feet long and 10 feet tall.
"The exhibit features the lobes, cerebellum and brain stem and shows what areas of the brain control functions such as hearing, touch, movement, speech and personality. It also shows various diseases and conditions which can affect the brain such as stroke, tumors, aneurysm and more," Dodd said in a release.
