Cambridge BRAINFest 23-25 June 2017

Cambridge BRAINFest is a public free festival of brain research that will bring together neuroscientists from across Cambridge to present ground breaking research in 28 interactive exhibits covering themes of Development', 'Brain & Body', ‘Pain & Pleasure’, ‘Imagination & Perception’ and ‘Learning & Forgetting’, spanning research from molecule to man. In addition, we will have Q&A sessions with experts at CafeĢ Scientifique, BRAINArt (featuring local schools), secret cinema, build-a-brain workshops, an historical self guided neurotrail and interactive neurotheatre, an evening 'Variety Showcase' (with public lectures covering the dyslexic brain, the degenerating brain and the obese brain interspersed with the story of Parkinson's disease through dance and living with dementia through poetry.) and an evening of 'Brains & Mental Health' (a question time styled panel discussion, hosted by Professor Sir Simon Wessely, featuring an expert panel). The theme of the evening will focus on how mental illnesses are disorders of the brain, the ongoing research that will help us better understand and treat these disorders and how we can bridge the existing gap between neuroscience research and current practice in the health service.

Cambridge BRAINFest Interactive Showcase @ Cambridge Corn Exchange

We hope that Cambridge BRAINFest will not only provide opportunities for mutual learning between scientists and members of the public, but also facilitate the transition of research findings into real life applications within a diverse range of public policy areas including health, education and law.
