Oxford Neuroscience and Oxford University Museum of Natural History have won a Building Capacity Award for Brain Diaries, an exhibition accompanied by a public event programme and online digital resources including an animation by Oxford Sparks. The award is part of the Vice Chancellor's Awards for Public Engagement with Research, now in their second year.

The Department was heavily involved in the Brain Diaries exhibition with many staff and students contributing to demonstrations on the interactive days ‘Super Science Saturday’ ‘Brain Aware’ and ‘NeuroNight’.

Worthy of particular mention is Zoltan Molnar, who played a significant role in the scientific content of the exhibition. Zoltan featured in one of the exhibition's videos and was interviewed about the exhibition here. Andy King presented a public engagement talk ‘Music and the Brain’ along with Eric Clarke from Music.

 The Brain Diaries exhibition is on at the Oxford University Museum of Natural History until 1 January 2018.
