Event description

Description

Our brain structure and function is hugely affected by our environment and our interactions with that environment. Light of one wavelength can make us mentally sharper, while that of another can help us relax and zone out, for example. Stress from the environment can deplete our mental abilities by its effects on our brain’s neurons. But we also create the environments that shape our brain function and so can indirectly shape our own brain health in this way.





PROBE at Trinity College Dublin is a free public pop-up festival showcasing the diverse range of academic research taking place in Dublin by engaging and involving the public with live experiments, exclusive demonstrations, interactive workshops, and much much more.

In Trinity’s historic Front Square, the diverse world of academic research will be laid bare with live experiments, exclusive performances, interactive workshops, stand-up comedy and storytelling sessions.

PROBE, a collaboration between Trinity College Dublin and Science Gallery Dublin in parnership with the British Council, is part of European Researchers’ Night, taking place in cities across the continent on 27th September. PROBE is free and is open to everyone of all ages.
