Celebrating 350 years of the Royal Society
As part of the 350 year anniversery celebrations for the Royal Society, the Southbank Centre and the Royal Society are coming together to host the public Festival of Science and Arts.
This is a unique ten-day festival filling every corner of Southbank Centre this summer. The festival explores links between the sciences and arts and features a host of cross-disciplinary collaborations, scientific and artistic events.
The Festival will include exhibitions and debates from Cambridge Neuroscientists, including:
A window on the brain
Venue: Royal Festival Hall, Southbank Centre, London
Friday 25 June to Sunday 4 July 2010. Entrance is free.
Cambridge Neuroscientists working at the Medical Research Council Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit are using modern imaging methods to unlock the mysteries of how the human brain works.
Visitors will be able to experience a mock MRI ‘brain scan’ and take part in experiments such as listening to speech, facial recognition and experiencing emotional events. They can assess their own brain functions and see images of human brains at work. For the CBU press release on this exhibition click here.
