Top neuroscientists from across the Medical Sciences Division have collaborated to produce an exhibition of the 'life cycle' of the brain.

Brain Diaries

Professor Zoltan Molnar, a key contributor to the exhibition, spoke to OX Magazine about what we can expect from the exhibition and why it is well worth a visit. Zoltan said:

The reason why I really love this exhibition is because it covers the entire life of the brain, all the way from the earliest developmental steps to the brain ageing and losing some of its processes. I think it’s a really unique idea, and I haven’t seen anything like it before.

From 10 March 2017 - 1 January 2018 the exhibition will be held at the Oxford University Museum of Natural History.

The Brain Diaries website has further information on the content of the exhibition, as well as many video interviews with experts in their fields.
