Neuroscience for schoolchildren

During the Brain Awareness Week in Ukraine (March 16-23) lead scientists and young neurophysiologists gladly welcome elementary and middle school students to the Institute laboratories. During these days children will have chance to listen to interesting lectures concerning human brain and keeping it healthy, to see popular science films and experiments that demonstrate brain function. Schoolchildren will be involved in measuring tactile, pain and temperature sensitivity. They also will observe tests with laboratory animals, examine different tissue types and cells through a microscope and draw them. Pupils will learn how to find structure differences between various cells and how to make conclusions of the work they done. During the lectures children also will get to know how synapses work and what their role in information transmission is, mechanisms of learning and memory formation. They will be told about the necessity of “training” their brain, to improve memory and intellectual activity. Tobacco, drug and alcohol abuse and their influence on brain function and health will be also highlighted. Pre-registration is required via e-mail: nana[at]
