This montage was created by 7 year olds, during an Outreach Neuroscience Day at Newnham Croft Primary School. The children were so engaged by talking about what their brains were for, how they worked, and how to look after their brains (exercise, good food, bicycle helmet and lots of learning!). They had a hilarious time getting tendon reflexes, pulillary refelxes and a shout-it-out-loud Stroop test. However, the highlight for me is always when the children draw their own brains, with such creativity, vivacity and imagination, whether picking up on localisation (see the blue picture’s annotations of ‘food bit’ and ‘thinking bit’) or the colours or the gyrating gyri. Truly amazing brains.
