Pick Your Brain
Friday, 16 March 2012 from 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM (EST)
Brain Awareness Week (BAW) is held in March every year.
This global campaign aims to increase public awareness of the benefits and progress of brain research. Fun activities and seminars happen around the world during BAW. This year, members of the Sydney Chapter of The American Society for Neuroscience and Australian Neuroscience Society will bring you a variety of fun and hands-on activities. So why not come to the Australian Museum and get your hands dirty. You will discover some amazing body sensations and find out how the brain works! See you there!
What will I be doing?
- Brain dissection: Sheep brain dissection, specimens of mouse, rat brains in jars and human brain in slices(NB we will only show human brain slices if participant requests and is mentally able to handle it)
- Experiment on yourself: Through a series of different experiments find out how good your brain skills are and learn how to development them further!
Who's leading this?
Dr Jin Huang, PhD, Lecturer, Discipline of Biomedical Science, School of Medical Sciences and Bosch Institute, Sydney Medical School, University of Sydney. So you're in good hands, we promise!
