Over the last few weeks we have also held a number of successful public engagement activities to celebrate Brain Awareness Week and as part of the British Neuroscience Association Festival of Neuroscience at the Barbican in London.
During Brain Awareness Week (11th-17th March 2013) researchers from across Oxford Neuroscience ran various activities to help the public explore neuroscience. These events included:
- Interactive activities at the Museum of the History of Science focussed around sleep.
- A public lecture entitled 'Body clocks, sleep and light' from Professor Russell Foster
- A dementia research day led by Dr Richard Wade-Martins of the OPDC.
