Big Picture Debates the Brain app
Explore social and ethical questions about the brain
Is being in love just a chemical reaction? Is technology harming our brains? Is it OK to enhance brain function with cognitive enhancers (‘smart drugs’)?
These are just some of the areas of debate presented in our free app, which explores social and ethical questions about the human brain.
The app is designed to be interactive: students can vote and share their view with peers. There is also an area for teachers, which gives suggestions for how it can be used in the classroom.
The app can be accessed on any computer, laptop or mobile device, and the iOS version can be downloaded onto an iPad.
