Museon The Hague

Do you see what you see? Taste what you smell? Hear what you see? Your senses and your brain often work together well, however, sometimes things can go wrong. Mistakes like these are exactly what illusionists like to work with and what scientists try to understand the workings of. In the Museon, the two worlds of magic and science touch. Let your senses be bewitched and your brain tricked in Illusions: magic or science?

Professor Susan Greenfield

This lecture is a special event for Game On 2.0. Neuroscientist, writer and broadcaster Professor Susan Greenfield believes long exposure to computers and computer gaming is harmful to the human brain. Her book, Mind Change was published in August 2014. In Mind Change, Professor Greenfield discusses the all-pervading technologies that now surround us. In her view they are creating a new environment, with vast implications, because our minds are physically adapting: being rewired. Using the very latest research, Mind Change is intended to incite debate as well as yield the way forward.

nutrition, expo, science

A major exhibition dedicated to the changes that have marked the way we eat and the complexity of the food system.

The protagonists are the people: each of us in his/her relationship with food. Food production professionals, researchers and industry experts, teenagers and adults were all involved in the design of the exhibition.

Sharing, change, relationships and technology are the key words through which the Museum interprets the theme of Expo 2015.
