Hack Your Brain
An introduction to the workings of your brain & nervous system. By creating a giant 'neuron' live on stage, this show explores the ways in which nerve cells send messages through the brain and body, and looks at how we can hijack these signals to allow one human to control the movements of another
Students will discover what a neuron is and how they communicate. They will also find out why this is important for everything from movement to learning.
I finish with a Q & A, covering any neuroscience/ psychology topic, which will expose students to the range of areas of study, and the number of unanswered questions remaining about the brain.To book this activity, please contact:
