The new special exhibition "SUPERBRAIN" starting on september 20th

What does the term “super brain?” What can people with a super brain do differently? Can everyone get a super brain? These and more questions we go to our new special exhibition on the ground. Sounds exciting? Then come and try yourself!

Exciting facts to take away

This is waiting for you in our special exhibition

1. The brain in the game

Homunculus:
This represents a distorted image of man, in which the size of the body areas based on the number of receptors there.
Touch receptors are very unevenly distributed throughout the body: the mouth and hands of the homunculus make up more than half of the body.

Psycho pendulum:
An exciting game is waiting with the psycho-pendulum, where it is necessary to impose your own thoughts. What does the pendulum do when you think of numbers 1 and 2? What if you think of the letters A and B?
The idea that the pendulum is moving unconsciously leads to small muscle movements that transfer to the pendulum and make it vibrate.

2. Brain and synapses

Brain model:
A total of seven monitors bring us closer to our sense organs here. Playfully, you learn facts about the mouth, nose, ears, eyes and our sense of touch, the skin! If a visitor approaches a screen, it responds and the brain model illuminates the corresponding cortex region, which primarily processes this sense.

(The cortex is the outer layer of the cerebrum)

Synapses wall:
At the synapse wall everything revolves around our communication points between the cells. On a nearly 10-meter-long wall you will find amazing information about the neural connections.

3. Brain in action

I beg your pardon …? A conversation with speech or hearing problems. What is it like to have a conversation with hearing impairment? From normal to almost deaf, the experiences you can go through here are enough.

Voice changes and unfavorable ambient acoustics allow us to experience how laborious it is to have a natural conversation with a counterpart under normal conditions.

The art of multitasking

Multitasking means the concurrent execution of two or more complex tasks. The human brain can not handle two processes at the same time and constantly switches between tasks with concentration and attention. The result is stress, loss of performance, extended response times and a higher error rate.

Who works tasks one after the other concentrated, makes fewer mistakes and is finished in total faster.

Did you know that...

… touches on the left side of the body in the right half of the brain and vice versa.

This is what our CEO says:

We have come up with something very special at the current special exhibition because we can make amazing how the human body works and what the human brain is capable of.
