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, loud 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.

Dating back to 1879, The Shakespeare—known as The Shakey—is one of the oldest pubs in Sydney. We'll be on the first floor in the 'Two-tables' or 'Antler' room. After the experience, you can sample the bar menu from The Shakey or visit one of the 100's of great restaurants in Surry Hills.
最多可有6位年满10周岁的参与者参加。 Please notify me if you need wheelchair access or if you have trouble with stairs. I'll organize the venue accordingly.
If you have long hair, bring a hair-tie. An EEG will not work through a wig, hairpiece or excessive hair product. You can take as many photos as you wish so bring a phone or camera.
