On Thursday 6th January, Dr Guy Sutton, Honorary (Consultant) Assistant Professor in the Division of Psychiatry at University of Nottingham came to Wyke to deliver a Brain Day Conference to our Psychology students.
He focused on aspects of Biological Psychology and performed a sheep brain dissection.
During his visit, he also:
• Provided an overview of how the brain works, illustrating some elementary principles of neuroanatomy and brain function.
• Examined methods of exploring the brain and its function, together with contemporary issues in neuroscience such as neurogenetics.
• Explained what happens when the brain becomes damaged and degenerates, with accompanying clinical examples.
Students were enthralled, and had lots of interesting questions for Dr Sutton. They particularly enjoyed being able to hold the brain and learn about the future of neuroscience.
Our Psychology department would like to thank Dr Guy Sutton and The University of Nottingham for their time. #MakeItHappen
