Public engagement event
- Life and Environmental Sciences, Research, Students
Doctoral Researchers from the schools of Sport & Exercise Science and Psychology will be showcasing their research as part of the ESRC Festival of Social Science. They are part of an event at the new Library of Birmingham: "Next Generation Social Science Research at the University of Birmingham".
As part of this, doctoral researchers Sophie Milward (pictured right) and Carmel Bennett (pictured left) are organising an event titled 'What makes people tick? Exploring the mind with Psychology' on Saturday 9th November. It will involve an exhibition of research carried out by doctoral researchers in the School, interactive activities for the public to take part in and also a series of lunchtime talks.
There will be several interactive activities set up in the exhibition room with a different researcher running each one. Some examples include executive function tasks on the computer, a crime linkage map for people to try to link different crimes to a single perpetrator, a model brain for people to assemble, an eating behaviour study involving tasting different foods and a pipe cleaner neuron building activity.
