Event details

There are approximately 80,000,000,000 brain cells - or neurons - in your big beautiful brain. But how does it all work? Join researchers led by Aneurin Kennerley and let your curiosity be the guide on a journey through the scientific study of the brain and mind. Have a go at driving a remote controlled car with the power of your mind; experience having your mind read in our cardboard MRI scanner or take home your own model neuron.

Meet the Researchers: Dr Aneurin J Kennerley, Frida Torkelsen, Dr Milena Kaestner
