The Curiosity Carnival comes to town!
PiNG researchers take part in the Curiosity Carnival across Oxford
On Friday 29 September Oxford’s Curiosity Carnival joined hundreds of other European cities in celebrating European Researchers’ Night. Our researchers took part in a city-wide programme of activities that attracted over 9,000 people.
Full information and photos from the event can be found here.
Activities at this colourful Wellcome Centre for Integrative Neuroimaging stall on Broad Street included 'guess the age of the brain', ‘brain snap’ and a very popular game demonstrating how the brain adapts when wearing prism glasses that shift your vision to the right.
21ST CENTURY PHRENOLOGY
Researchers put on a 20-minute play at the Museum of Natural History charting the history of modern neuroimaging, from Gall and his phrenology, through to large population studies using MRI. The cast included: Holly Bridge, Heidi Johansen-Berg, Saad Jbabdi and Stuart Clare, plus others from the Departments of Psychiatry and Experimental Psychology.
