Your brain is the most complex thing in the universe. It’s what makes you... you. Billions of cells working together to control your emotions, memories, movement and speech.

Come along to find out more about the brain and what makes it so fascinating. Diseases which affect the brain can be difficult to study and understand. Join Alzheimer’s Research UK and local researchers based in Scotland who are studying the brain and what happens in diseases like Alzheimer’s and other types of dementia.

We will be in Union Square, Aberdeen, with our fun activities for families. Check out our range of free activities for all ages, from craft activities like making a brain hat to a virtual reality experience that puts you in the shoes of someone with dementia. Plus much more!

We are also available to answer any questions about dementia, or signpost you to the best possible place for support.

There is no need to register for this event, just turn up and find us in Union Square, near the information desk.
