OPDC Career Development Fellows Natalie Connor-RobsonDayne Becanno-Kelly and administrator Melanie Witt visited a local Woodcraft Folk Elfins group in Dementia Action Week this month to talk about their work to better understand the brain.

The group of 6-9 year olds listened carefully as Dayne and Natalie introduced ideas of how the brain works, how sometimes things can go wrong, and how the OPDC team are trying to better understand what is happening so researchers can try to fix it.

More information and pictures of the event can be found on the OPDC website.
