Brain Day

Thursday 16 March 2017

For a second year running, Dr Guy Sutton of the University of Nottingham Medical School conducted a one-day tutorial in Neuroscience, for Prior’s Field Upper Sixth Biologists and Psychologists. An intensive day, students spent time considering such aspects as nerve cell function, the role of genes in the brain, brain anatomy (in humans and across species), the damaged brain, methods for studying the brain and cause and treatment of mental illness. Dr Sutton went on to deliver an evening lecture to a fascinated audience of parents and Sixth Form students, on the subject of ‘Mind and Brain in the 21st Century’.
