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:
• 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.
