The brain and cognitive sciences community builds an 8-foot 200-pound brain for MIT's Moving Day competition.

Project: BIG BRAIN

To celebrate a century in Cambridge, MIT invited members of its community to participate in a unique competition on May 7, 2016 called “Moving Day.” Points would be awarded to teams who crossed the Charles River with the most creativity, spirit and ingenuity. This 3-minute video tells the story of our winning entry: an 8-foot, 200-pound brain based on actual MRI data, constructed and rolled across the Mass Ave bridge by a team of people from MIT’s brain and cognitive sciences community.
