Gumnut Visit

Gumnut Visit

As part of the National Science Week, the Department of Cognitive Science hosted 20 four and five year old children from the Yellow Room at Gumnut Cottage in Macquarie University.

During their time at the Department, children listened to a lecture on the brain, participated in assembling a model brain, learnt about and had a demonstration of TMS, Peripheral Nerve Stimulation, MEG and finished off the visit with some brain colouring.

A big thank you to Associate Professor Paul Sowman, Andy Etchell, Dr. Wei He, Robert Seymour, Ana Murteira, Hannah Rappaport, Robin Blumfield and Dr. Nick Benikos for spending time with the children, talking to them about the brain and conducting lab demonstrations.
