On 17th February 2021 the Birkbeck Babylab featured in the award-winning children’s television series ‘Operation Ouch!’. The episode showcased current cutting-edge research Louisa Gossé is conducting at the BabyLab, examining what happens in babies’ brains during sleep. Watch on BBC iPlayer
Last week the INTERLEARN cohort of PhD students presented their PhD research during an online symposium! Talks were on sleep, active learning, touch, atypical development and individualised learning. Missed it? You can find the recordings of the talks here.
On Friday, the Babylab reopened its doors to the public for the first time since March. It was a delight to welcome our first infant scientist and parent back to the lab! The successful visit proves our enhanced safety measures are effective. The hardest part is social distancing from wonderful babies, but it's well worth it to keep research progressing and everyone safe. Hoping to see many more budding young scientists through our doors in the coming months!
CBCD PhD student Brittney Chere gives short virtual lessons on the brain aimed at children in years 4-6 as part of a Family Learning Series for parents and children. The series of videos, ‘The Brain Explained’, are short lessons accompanied by fun activities for impactful family learning.
