Journey through the Brain
In 2016 a group of RCSI scientists (including members of the ABD team) published ‘Journey Through the Brain’, a colouring book intended to bring to life the work they do and present it to a younger audience.
This year, the project won an RCSI Research Day Innovation Award.
The project was funded by the Health Research Board Knowledge Exchange and Dissemination Scheme, and illustrated by Dr Eoin Kelleher of the RCSI. The drawings introduce the user to the parts and activities of the brain, and its relationship with mental health and wellbeing, while accompanying text provides associated names and information. The authors hope the book will introduce young people to neuroscience, but given that colouring is becoming an increasingly popular way of counteracting anxiety and stress among adults it may well be of interest to all ages!
