Oxford Neuroscience Experience Day, 7th July 2023
In July 2023, the PERL group ran an interactive session with Sixth Form students, as part of the Oxford Neuroscience Experience. The Oxford Neuroscience Experience is an annual public engagement event where Year 12 pupils are invited to gain an insight into what neuroscience at Oxford really looks like. The session involved the students designing ‘mock’ experimental medicine studies, aiming to test potential new treatments for depression and anxiety. There was lots of interesting discussions and the students gave fantastic presentations at the end of the session.
