A series of interactive activities and public lectures will give people a chance to find out more about the way our brain works and some of the more surprising effects its complex mechanisms. There’s even an opportunity to take part in psychological research.
Nicholas Irving, co-ordinator of Oxford Neuroscience, said: 'The brain is always fascinating, sometimes confounding and occasionally downright strange. If you want to know your own mind better, these events are for you.'
Brain Awareness Week is supported by the University of Oxford and the National Institute for Health Research Oxford Biomedical Research Centre.
