What you'll do
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.

Where you'll be
Dating back to 1879, The Shakespeare—known as The Shakey—is one of the oldest pubs in Sydney. The wallpaper in our private space, The Antler Room, is original and the chandelier suits this experience. 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.
