New exhibition

WAVECRAFT: Two pioneers of EEG and their world 1st May-31st July 2018.

90 years ago Hans Berger discovered the brain’s ‘alpha’ rhythm. A decade later William Grey Walter set up the first EEG lab in the UK before becoming a leading light in the field. This exhibition tells their story, through made and found objects and images, archive material and text.

This exhibition is curated by Ken Barrett, who curated our 2016 exhibition Manhandling the Brain
