Oxford Brain Awareness Week: 14-20th March 2016

Brain Awareness Week 2016, two people using goggles

As part of Brain Awareness Week 2016, some students from the Physiological Neuroimaging Group along with other Plasticity students hosted interactive activities at the Museum of the History of Science on Sunday 20th March.

Members of the public of all ages learnt about brain stimulation (of watermelons) and how it can be used in motor rehabilitation for stroke patients as well as how prism goggles can be used in the treatment neglect.

The afternoon was a great success, with a huge amount of interest from all who attended.

Brain Awareness Week is supported by the University of Oxford and the National Institute for Health Research Oxford Biomedical Research Centre
