Pupil's Competition 2019

SFB 874

WRITING COMPETITION 2019 FOR 6TH, 7TH AND 8TH YEAR PUPILS OF SCHOOLS IN BOCHUM:

BRAIN vs. HEART - Who actually makes the feelings?

Heart throb, sweat or the nervous trembling - when emotions are involved, often the whole body reacts. But where do our emotions come from? And why do we need them? If your heart is racing with excitement, you are shining with joy, if you could turn green with disgust and rage: Who is responsible? Brain or heart? Tell us your stories, thoughts and insights. What does science say, what do you say? Whether short story, lyrics, poetry, diary entry, chat history or scientific research - everything is possible.

Your text should not be longer than 3 DIN A4 pages. You can work alone or in a group. Students from the 6th, 7th and 8th classes of all Bochum schools can take part.

Send us your entry with your name, your address and the completed participation form by e-mail or post by 04 November 2019 to the following address:

International Graduate School of Neuroscience (IGSN) Ruhr-Universität Bochum | Keyword: writing competition | FNO 01/114 | Universitätsstr. 150 | 44780 Bochum | E-Mail: heiler-igsn@rub.de
