Students of school 1517 showed great interest in brain research, asked a lot of interesting and complex questions about its work and structure in both Russian and English. During the lecture, all students were given the opportunity to hold in their hands and study a real scale demountable model of the brain. In addition, students took part in a mini-test, which assesses how attentive they were during the lecture, and also provides information to the lecturers on how easy the material was perceived, what students liked the most and how the lecture can be improved.
