How to prepare for the Brain Olympiad?

A lot can be learned about the brain. Fortunately, there are well-arranged study materials that you can use to easily prepare for the Brain Olympiad. The Society for Neuroscience publishes the Brainfacts booklet (approx. 70 pages), with accessible information about the brain suitable for everyone. If you have viewed this information a few times, you can already participate in the Brain Olympiad!

In 2021 we will organize a practical on the anatomy of the brain during the Brain Olympiad. In Round 2 questions will be asked regarding this practical. Would you like to prepare in advance? Have a look at the practical manual

For students who want to learn more, the Brain Olympiad provides a study guide made up of neuroscientific textbooks that are used in introductory courses at the University. Candidates will receive a download link from the study guide from us. We also send interesting facts and sample questions in our weekly newsletter and via our social media channels.
