Brain Awareness Week
Deniz and Maria
Monday, 12 March 2018
The group hosted a workshop to support Brain Awareness Week at St Michael’s CE Primary School, Marston, Oxford.
As part of the Brain Awareness Week, Deniz and Maria ran two sessions with the topic "What the brain does" and "How neurones work". Deniz and Maria explained how the group use imaging to explore the perception of pain in babies, and the children were shown the light-up 3D model of an adult and baby. The children also participated in an activity to simulate acting as a neurone, using string and cardboard ‘messages’ to pass information from eyes/ears/touch neurones to the brain, and from the brain to the body neurones.
