Hundreds of millions of people worldwide suffer from a neurological condition, and Kiwi scientists are instrumental in understanding and treating these disorders.

On Saturday 15 March, The University of Auckland is inviting anyone with an interest in neurological disease to learn more.

The free Neurological Open Day, organised in association with the Neurological Foundation of New Zealand, will give visitors an insight into current neuroscience and clinical research activities at the University.

It will include talks from University scientists, including Rutherford medalist Professor Richard Faull and MacDiarmid Young Scientist of the Year Jessie Jacobsen, about current research in neurological diseases, and demonstrations of the University’s neuroscience laboratories. In addition, associated support groups, such as Alzheimers Auckland and the Stroke Foundation, will be holding information workshops throughout the day.

The Open Day will be held at the Faculty of Medical and Health Sciences, 85 Park Road, Auckland, from 10.30am to 3pm on Saturday 15 March.

The Neurological Open Day is part of International Brain Awareness Week. Brain Awareness Week, from 10 March, is an international event designed to advance public awareness of neurological research.
