Experience the dazzling wonders of Neurodome, the brain-imaging planetarium software, and a screening of "A Beautiful Mind" starring Russell Crowe.

Professor Judith Pratt, Professor of Neuroscience at the University of Strathclyde Institute of Pharmacy and Biomedical Science, will lead you on a spectacular tour inside the brain, using planetarium software Neurodome to explore its inner workings, before we screen the Oscar-winning "A Beautiful Mind". This film is based on the life of Mathematician John Nash, who suffered from schizophrenia. Prof. Pratt will briefly talk about how the brain is changed in such mental health conditions.

Neurodome was developed by Swedish planetarium company SCISS, and uses immersive visuals projected all around you onto our huge 15m dome.

This event is being run in partnership with MQ. They are the UK’s only publically funded mental health research charity and working for the 1 in 4 of us affected by mental illness every year. You can find out more about their work at
