About the event

These sessions are closed for patients only

What parts of the brain do we need, in order to do our daily activities?  Getting out of bed, eating breakfast, going to school and (hopefully) paying attention to the teacher…all of these activities require lots of different parts of the brain to work together, as a network.

Join Vital Arts and the London Brain Project, alongside Developmental Cognitive Neuroscientists to work out which parts of the brain we use when going about our daily lives. Participants will use a colour-coded map of the brain to work out which parts of the brain they use in everyday activities. Beads which represent those parts of the brain, according to the colour-coded map are then gathered and threaded together to make their very own neural systems, representing a day in their life.

This activity is ideal for children and adults. Children must be supervised at all times.
