The Learning Brain

Are you a crammer or a planner? Grab your phone and take part in the University of Oxford's game 'Find the Brain' to find out which is best!

When you open the app, you’ll be assigned either to play the game intensively for a short period of time, or repeatedly over a number of days. The University of Oxford will be collecting anonymous data about which group of people has most success in the game.

Watch the results of the fun experiment revealed live from the fMRI scanner at the University of Oxford on Friday 15 March, 3.00pm. via www.facebook.com/OxSparks

What else do we know about how the brain learns? Oxford neuroscientists are finding out about sleep and learning, how teenagers learn, and the amazing capacity of the brain to re-learn after stroke. Explore this dedicated microsite has been created in partnership with British Science Week.
