This game works with: SheepShaver, Basilisk II,

Dr. Brain has accidentally merged his brain with his lab rat Rathbone (because a cheese-eating bee ate the cheese required for Dr. Brain's experiment, "The Brain Drain!"). Your task is to solve puzzles to rebuild Dr. Brain's brain.

Highlights include:
• unscrambling wonky sheet music for a harpsichord.
• a maze reminiscent of the Munchers games where you collect brains.
• wrangling thoughts through the Synaptic Cleft.

These are the puzzles that stick out in my mind all these years later, for a complete list visit this Wiki page:

No idea what was wrong before. I made no changes, tried again, and it runs in Bas
(Mem allocated to Bas = 64 MB, Game's mem size= suggested size (2200 kB),
screen set to 256 colours.
Thanks, added Bas to 'Emulation' in game entry now.

well how much memory do you have allocated to the game inside of Basilisk II ?
And how much memory is allocated to the Mac in Basilisk II ?
And how big is the emulated screen ?
and how many colours are in the emulated screen ? - this more than anything else may be the issue.

Althought being a 68k game, it seems not to run in Basilisk II.
Doesn't pass the 'Enter your name' screen, but shows a black screen instead of...
