2011 Royal Institution Christmas Lectures

The BrainBank is based on a series of lectures presented by Professor Bruce Hood for the 2011 Royal Institution Christmas Lectures entitled ‘Meet Your Brain’. Audience members were surveyed before and after the lectures to explore what demonstrations were the most effective, the most memorable and the most enjoyable. Subsequently, we tested 300 pupils from widening participation schools around Bristol before, immediately after the lecture and 7 weeks after the lecture to examine which demonstrations were most effective and which were remembered best. The BrainBank is the culmination of that work, incorporating the 60 demonstrations that worked best and were best remembered by the largest number of students
