Museum of the Brain.

This museum in Lima, Peru has a very unique collection: thousands of preserved diseases human brains!

Visitors can see brains of persons felled by
AIDS, Alzheimers, clots, hemorrhages, heart attacks and a myriad of tumors.

The museum is the proud owner of a brain that died of Creutzfeld-Jacob disease, the human variant of "mad cow," which results in progressive dementia and loss of muscle control.

Also on exhibit: the brains of people who died of trichinosis, the most common brain disease in Peru, caused by eating undercooked meat, usually pork.
