Educational resources

The brain is endlessly fascinating and can be explored by anyone, old and young. At the heart of what the BNA does is the desire to share the wonders of the brain and enable others to do the same, whether that is neuroscientists running public outreach days or teachers doing a lesson on the brain. 

Our educational resource pages contain resources provided by the BNA and other organisations to direct and equip you, whatever role you're in, to share the wonders of the brain.
