The brain is one of the most fascinating organs of the human body. It helps us think, learn and create our most cherished memories, and yet there is still so much to discover about how the brain functions and why diseases of the brain happen. Join neuroscientist and UK FameLab alumna Emma Yhnell on a journey through this incredible part of our body by using your own-made brain hemisphere hat to investigate the structures of the brain and understand what happens in brain disease.

This is a workshop, so assemble the necessary materials and prepare to get hands-on.
