Kiwi 3rd in Big Brain competition

August 12, 2016

Matthew Fulton from Auckland Grammar School was placed third in the world in the International Brain Bee Challenge in Copenhagen.

Students are quizzed on neuroscience. Topics include memory, emotions, sensations, stress, aging, sleep, addiction, Alzheimer’s and strokes!

This year’s overall winner was Ana Ghenciulescu from Romania. Second place was taken by Nooran AbuMazen from Canada.

Competitors are quizzed by a panel of neuroscientists. There may also be practical neuroanatomy (anatomy of the nervous system and brain) and patient diagnosis components.
