Description

#BrainPower is a whole day of free public events showcasing the best of neuroscience at UCL, held in the Cloisters of the iconic UCL Wilkins Building.

Want to test your cerebellum against a mouse? Control someone else’s arm with your brain? Check out real brain tissue with a microscope? Featuring interactive stalls, two sessions of BrainTalks, short films, artworks, live demonstrations, storytelling, and workshops, there will be something for everyone, including loads of family friendly options.

The event is on the theme of 'How does the brain work and why are some brains different?'

Register for your free place, and find out more, on the event website.



The BrainTalks will see 6 leading UCL researchers give brief talks:

  • What's so funny about laughter? (Professor Sophie Scott)
  • Interfacing with the brain – where are we and where are we going? (Professor Andreas Schaefer)
  • Stimulating Speech after Stroke. (Professor Jenny Crinion)

This special one-off festival is organised by the UCL Neuroscience Domain, the university's community for neuroscientists. It is celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2019, and #BrainPower is being organised to celebrate this, as well as to coincide with the annual Symposium on Friday 21 June.
