Humans are the only species to have developed an extremely complex language. In spite of over 6,000 languages in existence, which may seem very different from each other, they come from a brain structure that is common to all human beings. This brain is designed by specific biology, and this exhibition delves into the fascinating world of how the brain shapes language and vice versa: how language shapes the brain. We shall learn the origin of languages, the human brain from the viewpoint of linguistic functions, the evolution of language, its relation with concepts of the past, present and future (exclusively humans), and the amazing ability of children to learn a language. The exhibition also has an interesting module that demonstrates the activity of neuronal circuits.
