Hands-on at Methodist Church Main Hall

Saturday 15th October 2016 11:00AM – 5:00PM

Exeter University groups:

Helen Ryland and team will be demonstrating a number of ways in which brain and mind can be investigated from a number of different psychological paradigms, such as neuropsychology and social psychology!

Jo Welsman and colleagues from the Centre for Biomedical Modelling and Analysis at the University of Exeter will be asking how we take measurements of our own bodies, and explaining how researchers use this data to make predictions.  They’re bringing an EEG headset, so you can see your own brainwaves!

Alice Mills – Exeter Uni Physics and Astronomy
