Have you ever wondered . . . about anything?
If you have ‘wondered’ then this is just another demonstration of the amazing wonder that is your brain, the most complex thing on the planet. The brain controls everything we do or think and makes us what we are. As such, Neuroscience, the study of the brain and the nervous system, is one of the most exciting areas of scientific research, mainly because there are still so many unanswered questions as to how the brain works and why it goes wrong in disease.
On our Discover Neuroscience Day you will find out more about the Neuroscience degree at Manchester, the types of career available to you as a Neuroscience graduate and the cutting-edge research going on right now in our labs.
You will get the chance to do some hands-on neuroscience which will include:
• Seeing your own brainwaves using electroencephalography (EEG);
• Dissecting a real brain to learn about its structure and function.
Please note - these experiments will involve the use of animal tissue.
