Butterfly and the Brain

The American Museum of Natural History is running two special exhibits that intrigued both, Sarah and I.

The Butterfly exhibit, although it took all of 15 minutes, was beyond my expectations. We entered into a tropical world, warm and damp, with foliage beside the pathway and butterflies throughout. They fluttered from one leaf or flowering plant to another occasionally softly landing on a patron to the delight of the young and old. Their colors were fabulous with opened span, so many favorites: yellow, orange, and blue.

The Brain exhibit was our main interest here at the museum today. My interest in the functions of the brain comes from noticing how even within a family our differences are so unique from one another as each of us excel in different ways or are limited in areas in which others excel.

We exited the exhibit through the gift shop. I purchased a book for each of us, which best expresses the area of the exhibit we found most interesting.

For myself: 

The emotional brain: the mysterious … – Google Books

For Sarah:

Sudoku Variants – Google Books

As you may have already concluded: I run on emotion, whereas, Sarah runs on intellect.

How does your brain work?

    I love going to butterfly houses. It is amazing watching them and feeling them land on you. The brain exhibit sounds fascinating too.

    We saw a Monarch butterfly exhibit here several years ago at the Desert Botanical Gardens. It was neat to see so many butterflies in one place. It sounds like you had a good time with your daughter. I’m glad you were able to spend the day together.
