The Paediatric Neuroimaging Group are very excited to hosting a 3-day event at the Cheltenham Science Festival...... Let’s talk about infant pain!

Babies feel pain 2018like adults2019

Treating and measuring pain in infants generates public interest and challenges medical assumptions. We will give audiences the opportunity to see how the human infant brain develops and interacts with the outside world. Working with a graphical print artist we will present a series of life-size infant and adult brain models that audiences can handle and interact with.These models will reveal the dramatic structural changes that occur in the human brain throughout early development.

A life-size interactive sculpture will also be on display, demonstrating how adults and infants experience pain, and we will also use augmented reality to allow participants to see how our brain responds to events in our external environment.

An animated film about infant brain imaging will reveal how you can better understand what happens in a baby’s brain when they are experiencing pain.
