Susan Greenfield conducts us on an exhilarating tour of brain. A brief fascinating historical introduction is followed by a discussion on our present, admittedly limited, understanding of this amazing organ. Members of the group handle (and dissect) a real brain and use accurate scale models to get a real feel for the brain’s structure. Susan describes how modern techniques are beginning to unlock the secrets of this incredibly complex object which has such a mysterious outside appearance.
