Holmes Lectures for 10- to 14-year-olds

The Holmes Memorial Lectures are designed for 10- to 14-year-olds to foster an interest in science. 

The 2024 Holmes Lecture "HUMANS VS ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE: Lecture 1: Humans: Can you learn to train your brain? "was given by Dr Yuki Kikuchi and Ben Slater on 17 January.

Lecture description: Our brains are profoundly rhythmic, much like a great piece of music. In this lecture, researchers from the Faculty of Medical Sciences will explore how our brains process sounds and why this is important. We will delve into questions such as how brain rhythms help us learn and remember things more effectively, like learning a new language or revising for an exam, and how training in brain rhythms can be beneficial.
