Thank you to all those who attended the BNA2013: Festival of Neuroscience at the Barbican in April 2013 and helping to make the event such a success.
Almost 2000 delegates and more than 5000 members of the general public visited the Barbican Centre to experience this unique event.

"Just like to say, as a delegate, that the public exhibition was absolutely amazing, and so great to see kids and adults enjoying and wondering at neuroscience"
"Congratulations for the Festival, it was well organized, interesting, and it attracted many, both neuroscientists and public. I must say it was refreshing for me to be in a neuroscience meeting in which engaging the public was done with this sort of 'serious playfulness"
"My enthusiasm for this [clinical neuroscience / translational medicine] has increased further since attending the BNA this week. It was the most interesting and useful conference I have attended to date and defiantly the most fun. I think all conferences should have a public engagement remit, explaining your research to a 6 year old is definably worth doing and she had a questions!!"
