Brain Day Auckland 2013 lectures announced

The theme for Brain Day 2013 is ‘your creative brain’. Join us to experience lectures, presentations and creative works to enrich your world.

Lectures announced for Brain Day 2013Every amazing work of art, literature or music in the history of civilisation has been generated by the human brain. This incredible organ not only makes us who we are but also creates and perceives an in-depth world for us to appreciate. We will explore how our mystifying supercomputer makes this happen!

Leading scientists and clinicians from the Centre for Brain Research will explore how our brains create and perceive the environment around us. Workshops with community experts provide an opportunity to experience what your creative brain is capable of. Meanwhile interactive art, music and neuroscience demonstrations will entertain the whole family.

Brain Day Auckland is a free public event, held in the new venue of the University of Auckland Grafton Campus. We aim to provide information on the brain in health and disease, along with exciting developments in brain research.
