Neuroscientists from The University of Western Australia will spend Sunday at Scitech Discovery Centre, facilitating adults' and children's neuroscience activities and providing a range of neuroscience displays for Brain Awareness Week.
Learning experiences will include activities such as creating an origami ‘brain chatterbox'; a memory game; optical illusions; a competition based on testing reflexes; a collection of brains from animals such as a sheep, guinea pig, rat, mouse, fat-tailed dunnart, lizard, goldfish, and sea horse for discussion about their evolutionary and ecological contexts; and a crossword, word search, jokes, doodles and anagrams.
The event is part of the International Brain Research Organisation Brain Campaign and more information on other similar events around the world, from Australia to Zimbabwe.
