     BODY WORLDS & The Brain.
<p> </p>
    Dr. Gunther von Hagens invented Plastination in 1977 in an effort to
     improve the education of medical students. He created the BODY
     WORLDS exhibitions to bring anatomy to the public. The organs and
     whole-body plastinates in the exhibition derive from people who
     have, in their lifetime, generously donated their bodies for
     Plastination, to specifically educate future generations about
     health. More than 10,000 donors including more than 1,000 North
     Americans, including 86 Canadians have bequeathed their bodies to
     von Hagens' Institute for Plastination in Heidelberg, Germany.
