The Year 10 students will be pitted against more than 60 others from across the State in the country’s only high school neuroscience competition.

They will take part in a brain-teasing team challenge and neuroscience quiz to test their knowledge of the brain and how it works.

The challenge is designed to test school students’ knowledge about important facts concerning intelligence, memory, emotions, sleep, Alzheimer’s disease and stroke.

The students who make it through the WA final will take part in national finals in Adelaide in January.
