MRC Festival of Medical Research open day on 24th June
(this opportunity is open to those aged 16 or over. Those under 16 to be accompanied by an adult)
Do you want to experience how scientists investigate the ageing of the human brain!
On Friday the 24th June the Centre for Cognitive Ageing and Cognitive Epidemiology (CCACE) and Centre for Regenerative Medicine (CRM) are hosting an open day event as part of the MRC’s Festival of Medical Science 2016 called The Brain Maze: Amaze your brain.
When you come and take part in this exciting event you will navigate through twelve activity rooms that look at how the brain and body changes throughout our lifetime and how scientists measure those changes. You’ll need to keep your wits about you to navigate the brain maze. But don’t worry as we will give you a map. Along the way you’ll learn how and why some people’s brains and bodies fare better than others as they get older, and how research gives us clues to how we can age better.
You’ll descend into the basement of the University of Edinburgh’s Department of Psychology where you will discover how CCACE and CRM use the latest techniques in brain imaging, genetics, stem cells and psychology to investigate the brain and body from youth to old age. Along the way you’ll encounter some of the men and women who investigate the workings of the human brain and body, seeking to understand why some people’s brains and bodies fare better than others.
This is a free event which is open to all but you must book your two-hour slot in advance through Eventbrite.
