In this activity programme students can choose between two streams:
1) The science of mental health
2) Investigating the brain in health and disease.
Students will have the chance to learn from practicing scientists and this may include:
- A project using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI)
- A project using magnetoencephalography (MEG)
- Short talks about the neuroscience and psychiatry research going on at Oxford
- Mini projects on ophthalmology, sleep, cellular neuroscience and eye movements.
Professor Catherine Harmer, Co-organiser, Department of Psychiatry, University of Oxford, said:
'We are delighted to co-host this neuroscience experience week for Year 12 students in Oxfordshire wishing to gain more hands on knowledge of working in a research and neuroscience setting. Students will get the chance to experience what it's like to do brain research in Oxford, from research on sleep, vision, mental health and more.'
