This is an interactive timeline of humankind's knowledge and investigation of the brain. The timeline begins in 4000 BC and ends in 2000 AD. Many of the timeline's paragraph-long entries are complemented by pictures of scientists, scientific illustrations, and photos. Once inside the timeline, users are presented with different navigational tools. A pop-up menu allows users to jump to listed firsts (such as the first human behavior lab), discoveries (including prions), and 'weird stuff' (like phrenology). Alternatively, users can scroll to highlight large periods of time such as the Renaissance and then within that time period select a specific year to examine.
