What you'll do

You'll venture inside your brain to see how it works using a range of safe, high-tech electroencephalograph (EEG) headsets. You'll see your neurons firing in real time and learn about the importance of both exercise and meditation on the brain. You'll then play a game using only your mind to control the characters and compete against another guest. It's fascinating and lots of fun. Switch headsets to get a different view of your brain and check how well you can lower the amount of electricity your brain produces - the key to successful meditation. You can also pick the brain of your learned host while enjoying snacks and a drink at a historic local pub in Surry Hills.
