#BrainPower: The UCL Neuroscience Festival 


#BrainPower is a whole day of public events showcasing the best of neuroscience at UCL. This special one-off festival is organised by the UCL Neuroscience Domain.

Featuring interactive stalls, talks, short films, artworks, live demonstrations, storytelling, and workshops, there will be something for everyone, including loads of family friendly options. 

The event is on the theme of 'How does the brain work and why are some brains different?'

The UCL Neuroscience Domain is the university's community for neuroscientists. It is celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2019, and #BrainPower is being organised to celebrate this, as well as to coincide with the annual Symposium on Friday 21 June. 

Further details of the day's events, including details of speakers, will be published on this webpage shortly, and you can also guarantee that you receive updates by subscribing to the UCL Neuroscience Domain newsletter (twice a month), or by following @ucl_slms on Twitter.

A event like this thrives with thetinvolvement of enthusiastic volunteers. If you want to be a part of a fascinating day - talking to visitors, meeting other volunteers and exhibitors, and hearing all about neuroscience from some of the nation's top neuroscientists, then be in touch with the event team on rcocomms@ucl.ac.uk


If you have submitted a proposal for a stall or exhibit on the day, we remind you that a decision will be sent to you during March 2019. We have had a huge amount of interest, and really hope to be able to accommodate as many of the proposals as possible. The invited exhibitors will then be asked to collaborate with our team to develop the idea further in the lead-up to the event.
