BRAIN GAMES at The National Eisteddfod of Wales. A team led by Pharmacy staff in conjunction with the British Psychological Society and the Gymdeithas Feddygol are taking the Brain Games to a new level at the National Eisteddfod of Wales in Abergavenny this year.

Supported by the Wellcome Trust and the Neuroscience and Mental Health Research Unit at Cardiff University The Brain Games team will set up their biggest display yet at the Science and Technology pavilion on the Eisteddfod field.  A number of really exciting activities are planned starting with the revealing of:

  • Giant 4 meter long inflatable Brain Dome. This custom build structure will be housed outside the science pavilion and will be an educational adventure dome for children and adults hoping to learn about the workings of the human brain.
