Event description
With Storytelling in Action, learn how the brain communicates information through dance!

About this event

In a series of events during START, Magda Kaczmarska, a senior Atlantic Fellow, and Anusha Mohan, postdoctoral researcher at the School of Psychology, will use a specifically developed co-creative dance practice called Storytelling in Action (SIA) to facilitate a learning experience for primary school, secondary school, college students and adults about how the brain communicates different kinds of information between its different regions.

Secondary school students: Embodying communication between brain regions

Date: September 21, 2021, Time: 12:00 - 12:45 pm, Venue: Zoom

We will explore how different brain regions are made up of neurons which act in sync and communicate with one another during a complex task – e.g. a sing-along. Each classroom will be analogous to one part of the brain who will collaborate to create a separate action. A community dance involving them all in a wave-type choreography can be used to explain how different brain regions communicate through waves. This will be supported by visual aids which show the actual brain region they represent.

PLEASE NOTE: This event is for secondary school students to take part in with their class and other class groups from other schools. Teachers should register for 1 ticket for their class. To participate fully, you will need to have a functioning camera.
