Cambridge University’s the Naked Scientists took students at Chatteris Cromwell Community College on an interactive journey through the workings of the nervous systems during a series of workshops on Thursday.

Some braver students were used as experimental guinea pigs and had their brainwaves read to reveal how nerves send and receive information, activate muscles electrically, and fool senses into seeing things that are not really there.

The Naked Scientists also delivered an interactive discussion for the groups of Years 10 and 11 students, encouraging them to discuss the ethical implications of pharmacological cognitive enhancement.
