Last Thursday the lab, accompanied by Prof. Steven Woods, saw a performance of Brainstorm by Islington Community Theatre.

The 10-member cast, and the rest of the ICT company, produced a gripping and powerful exploration of adolescence and the developing brain.

The play was part funded by an Arts Award from the Wellcome Trust and the lab's own Kate Mills and Sarah-Jayne Blakemore acted as science advisers.

Details and reviews of the play can be found using the links below.
