Join Dr Holly Bridge on a tour through the functions of the human brain as part of the Royal Society Summer Science Exhibition.
Dr Holly Bridge is a Royal Society University Research Fellow based at University of Oxford FMRIB Centre. Dr Bridge's research looks at how visual information is processed in the human brain, both in subjects with normal and abnormal vision. In particular she is interested in how the input from the two eyes leads to a perception of depth (stereoscopic vision).
Dr Bridge gave an interactive talk to school groups during the Royal Society Summer Science Exhibition about her research. Students constructed a brain for themselves (from modelling clay) and were then asked to perform a variety of tasks designed to show variation in performance both between individuals and within their own brain. An overview of current techniques used to invesitgate brain function and dysfunction gave an insight into how scientists hope to gain a comprehensive understanding of the brain.
