Brain Cells and Worms v. Dementia and Parkinson’s! – Pint of Science
Pint of Science is a worldwide science festival that takes place 20-22 May and brings researchers to your local pub to present their scientific discoveries.
How brain cells are lost in Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s is a real puzzle, being tackled by many scientists in lots of different ways. In these talks, Selina will explain how we can better understand dementia, through growing brains cells in the lab, while Rachael will talk about what we can learn about brain cell loss in Parkinson’s, from genetically engineered, microscopic worms. Suitable for all audiences- no science knowledge needed.
