An exhibit in the Human part of the Natural History museum in London. A brain with the spinal cord attached. Pretty scary to see like this. I wonder if it should have an Adult tag on it - let me know.

I doubt this will do quite as well as yesterday's image, and a big thank you to Bill, Ken, Joline, Malc, Brian and Anne for their UAs.

Ooh er - - -
My father used to drag the family round the NatHisMus at least once a year in the 1950s. I have never been back since.
Now at last I know the Science Museum, the V&A and the IWM are the ones for me.

A good exhibit of the workings of the inner body.
(Your camera handled the lighting quite nicely, too.)

To think everything that our body is capable of doing and every thought we have comes from that funny looking mass on top. Similar to a well wired car. Very interesting shot. I'd like to go there.......Sandy
