Profs Áine Kelly and Richard Roche in conjunction with Tiger Media, have created this short video highlighting some of the outreach and public engagement activities the Neuroscience Ireland have been involved in in 2019
These activities have included:
A Brain Awareness Week event entitled “Painting Music: sound as vision via synaesthesia”. In this event, the remarkable nature of how sensory information is processed in the brain was conveyed through music and art, through live simultaneous performance of a synaesthete musician, Svetlana Rudenko, and a synaesthete artist, Timothy Layden
One of the highlights of the year was NSI organisation of the public programme of the BNA2019 Festival of Neuroscience. This event comprised 16 events held in 9 venues around Dublin city centre, with a satellite ‘Brain Movie Night’ event in Galway. The programme had events to suit all tastes, from rap to classical music, from art to contemporary dance and drama, along with well-attended educational events focused on brain research and patient experience.
