Mindz Brainplay is the only provider in the world taking neuroscience to the schools, the boardroom, the mall, the pubs and even your loungeroom!
Basically, MINDZ reads and explains the electrical signals coming from your brain using a variety of EEG (electroencephalograph) headsets. These brainwave signals are generated by the 80-100 billion neurons inside your head.
As well as actually seeing your neurons firing you can use the power of differing thoughts to control objects on a screen. You can even play games against friends using only your mind to move the gaming characters.
It’s a completely safe, educational and fascinating journey into the brain, brain health, neuron communication and the possible future of a brain-controlled world.
In all our school visits, we tailor our content to the year level of the students and align learning with the relevant NESA stage and outcome points. We also have specialist incursions for NSW Stage 6 Biology, Working Scientifically and Investigating Science. These are more HSC targeted and research based.
With the exception of our NSW Stage 6 incursions, all other sessions include the following components using up to 10 ‘demonstrators’ per group:
1. An introduction to brain structure, function and health
⇒ Neurons, their role and how they communicate
⇒ Preserving your neurons / brain health
⇒ A demonstration of the power of one neuron
2. Moving virtual objects with the mind
⇒ Moving an object on screen in different directions according to thought control
⇒ Seeing the application of this to medicine and the disability sector.
3. See inside your mind
⇒ Students view the incredible electrical network that makes up their mind in real time. ⇒ We explain what the colour and location of neuron activity mean. Click the image at right to get a glimpse.
4. Play a game / Fly a drone
⇒ Selected students play games with their friends or our system using ONLY mind control to score points.
⇒ One student per session will attempt to fly a drone using their mind
Basically, MINDZ BRAINPLAY takes neuroscience out of the lab and onto the streets. It’s educational, entertaining and gives a fascinating insight the workings of the mind.
