Neuroscience can often seem confusing and complex to an audience who does not have a scientific background, so how do you go about communicating your research to non-scientists?

A panel of science communication experts will debate their different approaches to communicate to a range of audiences: art, books, podcasts, meetups, TV and radio shows, social media, etc… Why did they choose this specific platform? Which audience(s) is the most receptive to it?

They will take the audience through some of the projects they have led, discuss what has worked best and share some of their top tips and tricks!
