Join artist Charlie Murphy and molecular neuroscientist Dr Selina Wray as they explain behaviours and patterns of brain health and disease at a molecular level through a series of choreographed dance moves.

Curious about the inner workings of your brain? Learn about the dynamic functions of your neurons and how their developments and connections inform ground breaking new research into different kinds of dementia.

Patterns and formations of neuronal growth, connection, communication and degeneration are celebrated through different dance groupings and wearable technologies, using dance to explore molecular neurochemistry. 

The Neuronal Disco is touring across festivals and venues in the UK. For the latest events, please see our Public Engagement listings here.  

Join this playful dance workshop for a glittering, exuberant cocktail of molecular neuroscience and dancing!
