Making sense of the mind and brain

Wednesday 14 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 allow visitors to take part in hands-on experiments and demonstrations. The second half will feature short talks by our scientists on their current research projects.
