Beautiful Brains

While you may not think of your brain as beautiful, what it does is incredible, and it allows you to do all the things that you enjoy.

This special set of resources is brought to you by Dr Lizzie Burns as part of her Inspire Fund project. Beautiful brains is a chance to explore and learn about the brain in creative ways. You’ll find out about your brain, as well as how it’s affected by dementia and how research into these changes brings hope for new treatments.
