Mind Maps: Stories from Psychology
© Jaron Chubb
The first intracerebral EEG, taken in 1958 from an epileptic patient at the Burden Neurological Institute.
This exhibition promises to be a fascinating journey through the science of mental health from 1780 – right up to the present. Cleverly, the curators have chosen to focus on four key episodes, looking at such controversial therapies as Mesmerism (a kind of hypnotism), Electroconvulsive Therapy (ECT) and the modish Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), using a variety of fascinating artefacts from the museum collection, before rounding up the latest thinking on the human mind and why it breaks down.

Interesting enough. A bit lacking. Biggest problem is it was SO hot it was unbearable and ruined the experience.

Waste of time and space. Looks like the museum had some things in their basement and couldn't figure out how to display it. There is so much that could have been done with this topic including interactive assessments, Skinner boxes with behavioural training, films of psychological experiments, DIY CBT, psychology of work, organisations, advertisement, health, animals, etc.  Shame on you, science museum.

incredibly disappointing for anyone who has a slight knowledge of psychology. if you don't, there's an arguably decent depth of detail in what happened up to 1950s max. after that, there are just a few books on a shelf showing how self-help or something has evolved. one piece showing where we stand today.

sounds helpful i might visit because i suffer from bad OCD mainly washing hands and have tried some cognitive behavioural therapy in the past.

You might want to look into spelling PSYCHOLOGY correctly before you post an ad.
