Brain Day Auckland 2017 – Research on the brain

The theme for Auckland Brain Day 2017 is ‘Research on the brain’. Join us to experience lectures, presentations and creative works to enrich your world.

Leading scientists and clinicians from the Centre for Brain Research will explore how our brains create and perceive the environment around us. Workshops with community experts provide an opportunity to experience what your brain is capable of. Meanwhile interactive art, music and neuroscience demonstrations will entertain the whole family.

Brain Day Auckland is a free public event, held at the University of Auckland Business School. We aim to provide information on the myriad of brain disorders affecting people throughout the lifespan, along with exciting developments in brain research.
