The main purpose of this competition is for people to share their thoughts and ideas about what brain science could and should do. Please don't submit an idea here if you are unwilling for it to be made public and possibly used by others.
One idea submitted either on this webpage, or in the museum exhibition, will be selected by our panel of imaging neuroscientists. It will be selected on the basis of the novelty of the idea, the practicality of running the experiment, and the ethics of performing it.
The winner will be invited to travel to the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford to see the research MRI scanner and watch the experiment being trialled. We are unable to cover any expenses incurred in travelling to Oxford.
We will only use your email address for the purposes of contacting you if your suggestion is selected. We may publish your suggestion (without email address) on the Brain Diaries website, within the Museum of Natural History or on other University of Oxford websites associated with Oxford Neuroscience.
