The Brain Game

On Saturday 17th of December, Martin Coath will be giving a day of presentations at the Science Museum in London.  'The Brain Game' is part lecture, part demonstration and part party-game! It has been designed to engage both adults and secondary school children in thinking about the way our brains work.  

 

"The aim of 'The Brain Game' is to get past all of the confusion that surrounds what people think they know about how the brain works and get down to the nitty-gritty of neurons.  

It is not afraid to expose the fact that in most respects we don’t know how the brain works.  That is the essence of the real brain game, the exciting game of neuroscience.  Many of the big questions are yet to be answered.

 

The brain game gets people off their chairs to pass messages around the audience in a way that shows how brain cells pass messages, it recruits audience members to play the part of axons and synapses on stage, and it makes sense of words like “axon” and “synapse”!

 

It shines a spotlight on the mystery inside our heads and reveals that in some ways it is very simple, and in others it is the most puzzling thing of all.  And it is a very good game."
