Open your mind with Naked Neuroscience, the spine-tingling, interactive monthly exploration of the workings of the nervous system from the Naked Scientists.

This month - from digging into dementia, to asking "are bigger brains always better?", we've had a glut of neuroscience news harvested in the naked scientists office, so prepare for a neuroscience news round up......
Can Music be Medicine? April 19, 2019
This month, Naked Neuroscience is putting music therapy under the microscope. We're tuning into the therapeutic properties of tunes, asking - what actually is music therapy? What health conditions can music therapy treat? And what's it...

Criminal Minds? March 20, 2015
What power does science have? We explore the influence of neuroscience in the courtrooms. Could brain scans shape prison sentences? Can it predict who will re-offend? We put the brain on trial with Cambridge University's Neuroscience and Public Po...
