A new exhibit coming to the High Museum in late April encourages patrons to explore art using brain science.

At the exhibition "Speechless: Different by Design," touching pieces of art is actually encouraged. As Jeffrey Brown reports, the Dallas Museum of Art show — created as a collaboration between designers and brain researchers — explores how people interact with their surroundings and how they communicate with each other.

The High Museum of Art said in their description that the exhibition will "debut new work by six leading and emerging international designers and design teams — Ini Archibong, Matt Checkowski, Misha Kahn, Steven and William Ladd, Laurie Haycock Makela, and Yuri Suzuki — whose projects were informed by conversations with specialists from prominent academic and medical institutions."
