Opening minds to the mind

Find out how the brain works at a special event for the public at the University of St Andrews.

As part of the Open Minds programme at the University, the School of Psychology and Neuroscience is inviting members of the public of all ages to attend its open event.

The day provides an opportunity to meet scientists, engage in hands-on activities, and explore what psychologists do.

How we see the world in three dimensions and how we learn about our culture are among the fascinating demonstrations.

Research in the School of Psychology and Neuroscience is concerned with everyday problems and issues and has genuine impact on the community.

The family-friendly day aims to have something for everyone and all are welcome to drop-in during the event which will take place on Friday 5 April from 10.00am until 2.00pm at Parliament Hall, South Street, St Andrews.

Paul Gardner, Principal Teaching Fellow in the School of Psychology and Neuroscience said: “This is going to be an exciting event which will give a fascinating insight into our minds and how we think, see, hear, learn and remember.

“Psychology is, after all, about our everyday lives.”
