The Strategic Neuroscience Research Network (StratNeuro) at Karolinska Institutet celebrates the International Brain Awareness Week with an open symposium on Saturday 18 March 2023 at BioClinicum, campus Solna.

The Brain Awareness Week is a global campaign to increase public awareness of the progress and benefits of brain research, organized by the Dana Foundation.

Come listen to seminars, do experiments or talk to an expert in the field of neuroscience.

We welcome visitors of all ages, young and older (most suitable for ages 12 and up).

Registration closed

Due to the enthusiastic response and interest from the public, we've reached full capacity at the venue and registrations have now closed.


During the afternoon you will have the opportunity to listen to various talks, do experiments, or pick a researchers brain. We will be in BioClinicum's conference hall.

We will have fun displays, experiments and games where you will learn amazing things about neurons and the brain and much more. For instance:

  • See the electrical signals from your neurons and muscles on a computer screen
  • Control a robotic claw or even another person’s arm using only the electrical signals from your muscles
  • Learn how muscle reflexes work 
  • See the electrical rhythms of your own brain
