'Fear Research: Science in "Haunted House"' Exhibition Outline

Haunted House

The emotion of "Fear" is still filled with mystery. How is fear created and how does it remain in our memories? How can we overcome our fears that we hold today? First of all, what does fear mean to us? To these questions, cutting-edge brain science is beginning to come up with answers.
Everyone has had the urge to run away from fear. That feeling is also important. Unless you respond to fear correctly, you will make the wrong judgment in survival. Fear is an essential emotion for survival.
First you will face fear in the haunted house. After that you will check out the cutting-edge research on fear. Why don't you think and learn about fear, as you face fear at Miraikan's haunted house? Our "ghosts" will help you along in that!
