BYOB online

'Bring your own brain' Festival of neuroscience

About Byob Ezui Hc1

Every two years, the British Neuroscience Association (BNA) co-ordinates a public festival of neuroscience to celebrate and share the science of the brain and nervous system.

All or most events are free and open to everyone with the aim to cover all types of neuroscience, from how we learn to mental health to discovering the inner life of locusts. Previous events have included art installations, evening talks, school sessions, and even a rap performance on consciousness.

This year's BYOB is taking place 21-23 April, with a range of events for different audiences. All activities are online and/or you can take part from home. Just Bring Your Own Brain and discover how amazing it is!
