Charlie Murphy leading The Neuronal Disco at Normal? Festival of the Brain 2017

Molecular neuroscientist Selina Wray and artist Charlie Murphy joined a diverse range of speakers at the Royal Society for Public Health's 'Powerful Partners: Advancing Dementia Care through the Arts and Sciences' Conference 2017. 

They discussed how the arts can open up and engage a broad audience in molecular neuroscience and how they’re approaching the challenges of understanding and communicating the amazing capabilities of cell technology through a series of choreographed movements to well-known pop songs.

A pop up installation of Charlie Murphy’s ‘skin to mind’ video installation was also presented.
