NeuroBarbie says, "Welcome to the neurofuture!" Friendly and familiar, her image invites everyone she encounters to learn more about the brain while she shatters gender stereotyping as a "Barbie brain" in science. Serious, with pretty hair. GI Joe's developing neuroweapons for DARPA and Ken is out exploring his sexuality after a surprising fMRI scan, but NeuroBarbie gets the job done with efficacy and flair!

Comes with assortment of gowns for award ceremonies. Skipper the Undergrad sold separately.

Yes indeedy, I have a new image and profile.

Above, Barbie stands in front of Fig. 1 from A Brain-Based Account of the Development of Rule Use in Childhood, Bunge and Zelazo (2006), Current Directions in Psychological Science. Available on PDF in a nice archive on Zelazo's web site.

Your new profile made me curious about other depictions of Barbies and brains, particularly since "Barbie" and "brainless" have become synonymous. A barbie brain Google search yielded 2,570,000 hits. The first page included:

Lobotomy Barbie

But also, from grow-a-brain, a link to

"a witty & moving short (18 min.) - The Tribe by Tiffany Shlain (= Founder of The Webby Awards). It tells the history of both the Barbie doll and the Jewish people - from Biblical times to present day. By tracing Barbie’s history, the film sheds light on what it means to be an American Jew in the 21st Century. With an Howl-like finale by Vanessa Hidary, the Hebrew Mamita…"

A quick image search didn't find much, only this,

from I just have an obsession with Barbie.
