Everyone has one, most people use theirs, but few know how it actually operates: the Brain! Our brains and their inner workings are exactly what’s at the heart of The Mind: Enter the Labyrinth, now showing at the Melbourne Museum. With 100 billion nerve cells, the human brain is the most complex structure in the human body and, in fact, in the known universe. It’s the operational center where physical stimuli of our five senses are translated into information which we use to feel, sense, think, learn, imagine and remember. Your mind makes sense of the world around you. Your mind is you. Utilising immersive experiences, artworks, and historical psychiatric objects, you’ll think twice about the workings of your own mind and the minds of others.
