The Brain Bus

Flippin’ Pain is dedicated to bringing the real science of pain to the people. The Brain Bus is our immersive, interactive mini-event village. Experience first-hand some of the mind-blowing lesser-known phenomena of the human brain and our senses. Understanding pain could be your first step towards recovery.

Experiencing is Understanding...

We believe that experiencing is believing when it comes to pain science. And there’s no better way to learn about something than to see it or feel it for yourself (don’t worry though – we won’t actually cause you pain!).

The Brain Bus is our interactive pain science laboratory on wheels.

Pop along and take part in one of our experiments, try out an immersive Virtual Reality experience or simply have a chat with one of our pain science experts that make up the Brain Bus team.

When: Pop-up sessions everyday from Sunday 12th to Friday 17th September
