Event details

Explore what makes you 'you'. Find out how your brain works and how it controls so many of your body's functions – often without you even realising it.

 
Play memory games, step into an optical illusion and (attempt to) interact with exhibits that require some mind over matter.
 
Developed with the national curriculum in mind, the Brain Zone has much to offer psychology students, but it also offers broader science insights, such as how scientists carry out experiments when data is hard to capture. 
 
Don't miss:
  • Sip of conflict – A drinking fountain disguised as a toilet bowl. Your brain knows the water is clean and drinkable, but can you happily have a drink and not think 'yuck'?
  • Disappearing hand – You will believe that your hand has disappeared even though your brain tells you it can't be possible.
  • Do not touch – Dare you risk pressing the red button, and how will you react if you do?
  • A REAL brain – Take a close-up look at the human brain – the container of all our hopes, dreams and memories.
