Brain of the Dead - syllabus
Zombie Science: Brain of the Dead
This spoof lecture lifts the lid on the Zombie skull and peers into the
brain of the infamous movie monster. Presented by expert Zombiologist
Doctor Howe you will learn about the science of Zombies using interactive
demonstrations and a multi-media presentation.
Brain of the Dead is the third show in the Zombie Science spoof lecture
series, which has attracted audiences of over 36,000 at more than 400
lectures across the UK and Ireland - including sell-out performances at the
Glasgow International Comedy Festival and Edinburgh Fringe Festival - and
is supported by the Wellcome Trust and the University of Glasgow.
In the lecture you will discover which parts of the brain a Zombie disease
would have to attack in order to produce the symptoms of a typical Zombie.
Audience members will also be invited to bash the brain of a Zombie patient,
remove Zombie ticks from a patient's arm, and try out specialised goggles
that let you see in Zombie vision. This is the science you need to survive
the inevitable Zombie apocalypse.
