Start Your Day With a Dose of Happiness (2020)

Cafe Muse, Queensland Museum

Summary

Everyone has something that makes them happy. It could be puppies or rainbows or even chocolate. But why? And what is happiness? Our brains are complicated organs that can respond to a raft of different chemicals but is that the best way to measure emotions? And for those who have been through traumatic experiences, what does the road back to happiness look like?

Explore how changes in the brains of people can affect their happiness and how different treatment strategies can help to bring the joy of life back.
