Curious about the brain? Now you can learn about it with your everyday home decor. ThinkGeek created a 10-piece set of Brain Specimen Coasters that separates the organ into thin slices. Each part is printed on a four-inch clear glass coaster, and they form a complete three-dimensional brain when stacked on top of one another. There's a specific order to the assemblage, but that's not hard to recreate since each piece is labeled.
The vivid designs are reminiscent of what's produced by a microtome, which is a tool used to cut something into extremely thin slices for view on a microscope. Individually, you can better understand parts of this fascinating organ, while at the same time having an eye-catching accessory that's sure to be a conversation starter for your guests.
