The Institute of Neurological Science (INCN) in Lima houses the only "Brain Museum" in Latin America. The magnificent and amazing collection contains over 3000 samples from which around 300 are on permanent display, including brains with diverse cerebral injuries or abnormalities and fetuses, a unique assortment of pathological microphotographs and other samples of academic scientific importance in the field of neurological science.

The carefully assorted exhibits show in an unique way the research and development of the neurological science from 1942 until today and its importance of diagnostic. Really worth a visit even for non-professionals.
