Hosted by The University of Western Australia and Perron Institute for Neurological and Translational Science, discover the wonders of the brain and why it is so important.
Colour in a brain hat or brain chatterbox, take part in a classic game of Memory and learn how the brain processes information with optical illusions.
Plus, take a closer look at a collection of real and 3D-printed brains from a range of animal species including a sheep, goldfish and shark.
