Neuroscience quiz game for our Psychology students

Discovering Neuroscience Psychology while playing

Our second year Psychology students had the opportunity to experiment with neurons and get better acquainted with Neuroscience while playing a quiz game during class. Dr Maria Tziraki, Lecturer at our Psychology Department, challenged the students with a neuron quiz game that they played in class in the context of Neuroscience unit.

During the first part students were divided in four teams and were asked to construct different types of neurons. Each team was rated from  the rest of the teams. Then the three best teams chose a representative that took part in a quiz game. The representatives had to reply to questions posed by pressing a button. If they gave the correct answer, they got one card from the board. The last round was between two teams and the prize of the winning team was marshmallows!

Experiential learning is promoted though learning activities inside and outside the classroom, allowing students to engage intellectually, creatively, and emotionally in the learning process and increasing student motivation to apply their knowledge.
