Brains on display
23 March 2009
Grade 10 learners visited the Cape Universities Brain Imaging Centre (CUBIC) at Stellenbosch University's Tygerberg Medical Campus on 17 March. Researchers from UCT and the University of Stellenbosch are collaborating on numerous brain and behaviour studies at CUBIC as part of the Cross University Brain and Behaviour Initiative (CUBBI), with some of the most cutting-edge imaging and brain-mapping equipment available. Learners were given a guided tour and presentations as part of Brain Awareness Week, which runs from 16 to 22 March. Seen here are learners from Ravensmead Secondary School in the Anatomy and Histology Museum.
