Centre for Brain Research

Brain Day 2013


The theme for Auckland Brain Day 2013 was 'your creative brain'. Leading scientists and clinicians from the Centre for Brain Research explored how our brains create and perceive the environment around us. Workshops with community experts provided an opportunity to experience what your creative brain is capable of. Meanwhile interactive art, music and neuroscience demonstrations entertained the whole family.
