The event featured neuroscience skill-testing questions, hands-on demonstrations and a neuroanatomy scavenger hunt.

A highlight of the event was a trivia contest won by Brittany Smale, who will represent London in the National Brain Bee competition May 31 in Hamilton.

The Brain Bee is part of an international neuroscience initiative that aims to motivate students to learn about the brain and pursue neuroscience careers in order to help treat and find cures for neurological and psychological disorders.
