What is the Oxford Brain Bank? Why is it important to have a brain bank? What are the plans for the future? Come and hear Oxford Brain Bank staff answer these questions during an introductory talk in Seminar Rooms A & B, Level 6 of the West Wing, John Radcliffe Hospital.

This talk will be followed by a tour of the Neuropathology Lab on Level 1 of the West Wing, where you will have the opportunity to:

  • Look down a microscope at a healthy and diseased human brain
  • See a real human brain
  • Observe how tissue is prepared for analysis
  • Learn about research projects involving brain bank tissue
