Brain Illusions Fair 2009



The Centre for Genomic Regulation (CRG), the Event lab from the UB and IDIBAPS, together with the Institut de Cultura de Barcelona and the Fundació Catalana per la Recerca i la Innovació (FCRi) are proud to present you the 2009 Brain Illusions Fair.


The science fair will be held on Friday 8th of May from 10am till 12am, at the old factory Fabra i Coats (Carrer Sant Adrià, 20 - Sant Andreu, Barcelona). Entrance is free.

More than 30 scientists of the most prestigious research centers in Barcelona will leave their labs for this very special day.

They will let you make incredibly surprising and fun experiences:

  • you will be able to make your body move virtually only with your brain power
  • you will try to walk along a line with special glasses that modify your vision as if you had drunk too much alcohol.
  • you will hear people approaching that do not exist
  • and much more!

There will be some short talks and show-talks. You will also be able to explore other perception areas of your mind by listening some bands on the stage, theatre, dancing performances and the presentation of the project "Realidades Paralelas".

Scientists will let you experience and they will help you to understand what is going on, explaining you the science facts behind the experiments in a funny way.
