Brain Day 2018


Join us for a stimulating, informative and fun day of neuroscience at the University of Auckland Business School on 21 July 2018.

This year's event includes panel discussions on key topics related to neuroscience and the community, science displays and research labs, talks by early career scientists and community groups and lots of fun activities for younger age groups – including science experiments and activities from the Being Brainy programme.

The Centre for Brain Research acknowledges the support of the Neurological Foundation of New Zealand, Brain Research New Zealand (BRNZ) and many other community organisations and volunteers whose contributions make this event bigger and better each year.

In New Zealand, the Neurological Foundation has been supporting Brain Day events for 12 years as part of the Dana Foundation's international public awareness on the progress and benefits of brain research. 

When: Saturday 21 July 2018 9am-3.30pm

Where: University of Auckland Business School, Sir Owen G Glenn Building, 12 Grafton Rd (off Symonds St)
