Your Divided Brain

This event is part of the Royal Society's Summer Science Exhibition 2023. 

Professor Gillian Forrester (University of Sussex) will take the audience on a journey of the evolution of the human brain, dating back to the rise of vertebrates. Using puppet props, the audience helps to create a vertebrate tree of life whilst finding out about the how the two sides of our brain have evolved to control our behaviours in different ways. Audience members are encouraged to interact and ask questions.
