Mind matters: An evening looking into the brain

6:00pm-8:30pm on Wednesday 20 March

Times shown are in GMT (UTC +0) up to the 26th March. For events on or after 27th March times are in BST (UTC +1).

MRC Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit, 15 Chaucer Road, CB2 7EF

The MRC Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit (MRC CBU) is a research centre for advancing our knowledge of human cognition, with programmes that cover childhood development, mental health, ageing and dementia, neurological and sensory disorders, and fundamental cognitive neuroscience. We investigate fundamental aspects of brain function such as memory, attention, perception, language and emotion. Alongside pure research, we are active in translating research findings to improve health and wellbeing.

The first part of our open evening will provide guests with the opportunity to get involved with fun and engaging hands-on experiments and demonstrations such as hearing demos, memory games and the third thumb experiment. We will also be hosting three short tours of the Unit’s MEG and MRI facilities (tour places are limited and can be booked upon arrival). There will also be an opportunity to chat to our scientists and learn more about the Unit’s research.

From 7:30pm, our team of expert scientists will deliver four short talks on current research studies and findings.

The experiments, tours and talks are suitable for all ages.

Bookings are not required for this event – just turn up on the night. The maximum capacity is 100 people, on a first come first served basis.
