Event details

Hosted by the Centre for Arts as Well-being at the University of Winchester (as part of Research and Engagement Week 2016), in partnership with the University of Southampton. Join the conversation between neuroscientists researching the effects of dementia on the brain with artists working to improve the quality of life for those with dementia.


Performers and researchers from the Centre for the Arts as Wellbeing at the University of Winchester have been exploring the effects of interventions for those with dementia, in hospitals and the community through a variety of art forms including music and poetry. Interventions that increase the activity of the brain, and therefore increase the blood flow to the diseased areas, are effective for patients and provide a supportive activity for carers. Join us as neuroscientists, performers and researchers showcase the integration of biomedical and artistic data and processes. We hope together we can trigger new avenues of research for artistic and scientific interventions in dementia.

Research Lectures: Arts and Dementia Project by Professor Norma Daykin at the University of Winchester, and Biomedical Research by Dr Roxana Carare at the University of Southampton.
