The Amazing Brain

Science week, 4-10 September 2017
Theme week about what is perhaps our most important body part – the brain!

Illustration of the human brain

The human brain is amazing! During this week we will address issues focusing on perhaps our most important body part, including such diverse areas as the effect of music on the brain, what happens when the brain doesn’t work, how to eat smart, if there is actually anything that is normal, and much more. Come and hear fascinating lectures, take part in fun ex-periments, and see interesting exhibitions – all on the topic of the brain!
