The program intends to address audience from all age groups, starting from the youngest ones. The programs are not only directed towards students (from the youngest age to PhD students) but will also be partially tutored by graduate and PhD students.

Brain Exhibition

Emilia Madarász
Institute of Experimental Medicine of Hungarian Academy of Sciences

Based on the huge success of former BAW activity in Budapest in 2015 the program includes:

The brain in pictures: exhibition of pictures explaining the macro- and microscopic structure of the brain, the main routes of contemporary brain research, and the methodology of behaviour studies

Playground of behavioural studies: active experimental practices for visitors at 12 work-benches supervised by scientists. The experiments on mice and rats included observations of animal behaviour in open-field tests, Skinner-boxes and labyrinths. Self-tests of human reactions could be studied in human brain-computer interface experiments, audiometry, tremorometry as well as in optical and audio illusions.

Color the Brain

We invite people from all age groups to participate in our Color the brain! program. Our visitors will get to know more about the secrets of human body with the help of our professional anatomy teachers. What can we find in the thoracic and abdominal cavity? What are the parts of brain? You can learn all these on plastic preparations used by medical students!

The youngest can gain further knowledge while participating in interesting games, tests and quizzes, such as a giant human puzzles and coloring books.
In our histology rooms we will show you how histological slides are made from human tissues, and you will have a chance to explore the microscopic build-up of several organs.
