Professor Richard Apps

Impact

I organised Bristol Neuruoscince Festival (2013, 2016) and take part in 'Brain Awareness Week' each year, helping to demonstrate and talk about neuroscience with all members of the public with other members of BN.  We use different hands-on activities, such as puzzles, models, microscopes and more, in order to engage interest and conversation about the brain.

Occasionally I also give talks in schools.
