The Brain - Use it or lose it

The human brain is the highest achievement of nature. Our brain is the result of 3.8 billion years of product development! Three internationally recognized science centers have developed this hands-on exhibition, where visitors can experiment with their own brains in a completely unique way and achieve an understanding of the brain and its possibilities.

Through 50 entertaining, educational and absorbing activities, the exhibition invites visitors into a futuristic mind-training center. Visitors may check-in into the exhibition. This can be done from home via the Internet or at the exhibition at each activity station. During check-in, visitors are asked to tell the exhibition’s virtual guide about their personal brain-status.

++ The plasticity of the brain

Research shows that the brain is plastic and can be shaped and developed through the tasks we give it throughout our lives. The training each visitor receives at the exhibition therefore also differs with each person. With an intelligent Rfid finger ring, the exhibition can recognize each visitor, and the virtual guide puts together a personal training course by suggesting which experiments the visitor ought to try out. Fortunately, there are plenty of challenges for all, so the visitor is welcomed at both the exhibits the trainer has suggested, and also at the other activities.

The virtual trainer guides the visitor to the selected activities and remembers the results of the experiments by saving the results on the visitor’s personal website.

It is also possible to use the exhibition as an exciting exploration of the incredible human brain without checking-in into the exhibition. [http://www.braintheexhibition.eu/sales For more information]

++ 7 educative and entertaining zones

The exhibition is divided into 7 themes, which present the latest knowledge about the brain through activities that illustrate the brain’s functions. After the in- troduction area, the rest of the exhibition is about you and your brain - essentially a large catalogue of practical activities that show you the endless pos- sibilities that lie hidden in your brain. Every zone contains an “Infopoint,” which provides spoken information and practical advice and tips about the activities in the zone.

Visitors spend an average of 1,5 hours in the exhibition. The atmosphere is excitingly intense and focused as the guests are absorbed by the activities, which are suitable for both adults and children. The exhibition also provides an excellent environment for group arrangements, from both the educational and health sectors.
