Upper Sixth biologists were delighted to host Dr Guy Sutton from Medical Biology Interactive for our first Brain Day session. The day was arranged to support A level teaching and as part of our Science Week activities. Dr Sutton gave a series of lectures on the anatomy of the brain, genes and brain development and the effect of drugs on the brain. He completed the sessions with a dissection of a sheep brain and the students were able to handle the brain and the various parts of the brain once it was dissected. Dr Sutton’s presentations were of university level and the students found him to be a most enthusiastic, engaging and inspirational speaker. This day enthused and invigorated the biology students and the departmental staff and will become a regular fixture in the Biology department’s calendar of events.
