Brain Lab Instructor. DIBS Discovery Day. Duke Institute for Brain Sciences (DIBS). April 15, 2018

Event Attendance

More than 400 children and adults of all ages attended the 2018 Discovery Day at the Duke Institute for Brain Sciences. Youngsters crowded around tables featuring preserved brains and brain slices, eager to touch an actual human brain. Others learned how to mimic emotions with the help of staff from the Duke Center for Autism and Brain Development. Graduate students helped people learn how the brain accommodates changes in vision, using special goggles and bean bags to throw at targets. (Hint: Changing your field of vision makes it tough to hit the target -- but the brain adapts quickly!)
