Discovery night: a journey through the brain

Wednesday 13 March: 6:00pm - 8:30pm

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

The MRC Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit (MRC CBU) is a leading research centre for advancing understanding of human cognition. 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. This includes the development of psychological therapies for mood disorders, improving our understanding of cognitive problems in childhood, and optimising diagnostic and rehabilitative techniques for neurological conditions.

The first half of the evening will enable hands on experiments and demonstrations, and the second half will feature short talks by our scientists on their current research projects.

Please note: bookings are not required for this event. Please turn up on the night, maximum capacity 100 people.
