Over the centuries, Yale-affiliated scientists and doctors have conducted (in)famous experiments, refined neurosurgical procedures, collected countless specimens (fossils, minerals, brains), and exerted considerable influence on today's scientific knowledge and medical practice. This ~2.5-mile tour will take you by the historic homes of paleontologist Othniel Marsh and geologist James Dwight Dana, among others. You'll also stop in for visits at the Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History and the Cushing Center (also known as the "brain room").
