Brain awareness week 2015

We have been out and about over the past week to take part in a number of events for Brain Awareness Week, a global campaign to increase public interest in neuroscience research.


Here are some of the highlights:


• Members of the public had the chance to try out interactive activities from CHA (a Contextual Cueing task and an Asteroid Brain Training activity) and ConBRIO (the COMET Wheel of Fortune game).

• Clare Mackay gave a talk at this year's Oxford ARUK Dementia Awareness Day about bridging the gap between research and clinical care.

• We learnt about exercise and cognition, epilepsy, cerebrovascular disease & dementia and Parkinson's disease at the Tackling Brain Diseases talks, which included a question-and-answer session.

• We shared information about OxDARE and current research, and invited member of the public to become Friends of OxDARE.
