Last Monday was “Brain Day” and sixth form Psychologists and Biologists were treated to a day of brain lectures and activities, delivered by Dr Guy Sutton, Lecturer in Neuroscience at the University of Nottingham. This was a terrific opportunity for students to learn and interact with a brain specialist. The morning was all about structure and function of the brain, with a dissection of a sheep’s brain and the afternoon was about mental illness with a detailed talk about schizophrenia. This was a fascinating day that we will certainly repeat in years to come.
