One of the central elements of the exhibition Deliquescing by Steve Bishop is the lion’s mane mushroom (Hericium erinaceus), which has shown a remarkable ability to stimulate the synthesis of nerve growth factor in the brain. Lion’s mane is sold as a dietary supplement for memory enhancement and is being researched as a potential medicine for the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease. The biologist Sylvia Hutter focuses on the healing effect of mushrooms. She will be giving further insights into the nature, growth and possible usage of the lion’s mane mushroom during her guided tour.
