Hack Your Brain!

How much do you know about your brain and nervous system?

Join Ginny Smith for a fast-paced tour of how your brain works. Live demos and experiments will investigate how an understanding of our neurons, along with the right technology, can allow us to control someone else’s movements.

By creating a giant 'neuron' live on stage, the show explores how nerve cells send messages through the brain and body and what happens in your brain when you experience an illusion or learn something new. By finding out how to hack your brain, this session may even help you use it more effectively and become a better learner!
