Oxford Neuroscience Experience
The annual programme
We run a five-day programme of activities for Year 12 students based in Oxfordshire who are interested in brain research and are planning to go to university. Students can choose between two streams: 1) The science of mental health; and 2) Investigating the brain in health and disease.
The programme gives students the chance to learn from practising scientists and may include:
- a project using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI)
- a project using magnetoencephalography (MEG)
- short talks about the neuroscience and psychiatry research going on at Oxford
- mini projects on ophthalmology, sleep, cellular neuroscience and eye movements
