In this Biology/Psychology session, Dr Matt Parker, Senior Lecturer in Neuroscience and Sleep Science in the School of Biosciences and Medicine at University of Surrey, will run an interactive talk for students entitled A Tour of the Human Brain in 5 Recent Discoveries.

Matt will begin with an introduction to Neuroscience before moving on to discuss ‘cutting edge’ techniques used in neuroscience and how they originated.

We will then explore in detail 5 recent discoveries about the brain before considering where these advances will take us next.

The session will develop thinking, skills and approaches to support students in their Biology and Psychology studies and future aspirations.

The precise focus of this session will be available here as soon as it is confirmed.

Our events are designed so that a group of students can take part from a classroom or students and teachers can take part as individuals, either from school or from home. This means that sessions will continue irrespective of possible school closures.

As a live, participative event, this session will not be recorded but slides and other resources will be shared after the event, where available.


Suitable for: Year 12 & 13 students (and equivalent) studying, or with a possible interest in studying, Neuroscience, Biology, Psychology and related disciplines. Student groups as well as students and teachers joining individually are very welcome.

Preparation/Pre-Reading: Students may wish to consider the topic in advance and questions they have. Students can also think about questions about studying Neuroscience and related subjects at university level.

The IT Setup: The event will be run on Bluejeans (similar to Zoom) and participants will be able to join using laptops, tablets, and mobile devices. If you are joining as a school group, we recommend connecting with one device and projecting on to a whiteboard.
