The exhibition also explores other minds beyond the human one: artificial, animal, and collective intelligence as well as organisms without a brain.

There is also historical material from Santiago Ramon y Cajal and René Descartes, inventions from visionary scientists,, and projects from landmark research projects.
The exhibition is a co-production between Fundación Telefónica, the Wellcome Collection (London), co-producer of ‘Brain(s)’, and CCCB.
