Bristol Neuroscience Festival followed by drinks or food

Event description from the Uni below. The exhibition is free. Feel free to come along for the Exhibition or for drinks/food after. Also a great chance to experience the grandeur of two of Bristol Uni's most icnonic buildings. Will probably head to the Berkeley after cheap drinks and food at decent quality. Meet outside the main door to The Wills memorial building at 1pm.

The Bristol Neuroscience Festival is the 10th Anniversary celebration of ‘all things neuroscience’ at the University of Bristol. Held at the University’s iconic Will’s Memorial Building and Victoria Rooms, the festival will host a number of different free activities, with something for everyone, including:

Interactive exhibitions with hands-on activities and experiments for all ages (there will be robots, knit-a-neurone, virtual and real experiments and a blow-up-brain, to name a few...)

Exhibits developed in collaboration with external partners including At-Bristol (http://www.bristol.ac.uk/neuroscience/events/diary/2013/www.at-bristol.org.uk).

Places to learn about University of Bristol’s research and major discoveries, whilst meeting and questioning the experts.

A series of “From Brain to Behaviour: Insights from Bristol Neuroscientists” talks over the two days, covering a diverse range of engaging subjects, ranging from how our brains control movement to the effects of stress, drugs, the neural basis of learning and memory and brain diseases such as dementia.

A SciArt exhibition, which will provide a space to relax and discuss our collection of beautiful neuroscience images.
