There will be several kinds of tests at the British Brain Bee, depending on whether it is a national or regional competition. Possible tests include:
- a written exam of multiple-choice questions,
- live Q&A session requiring one word or one phrase answers to be written on white boards
- a human neuroanatomy and neutohistology test
- a patient diagnosis test. The recommended study resources for these tests are as follows (check back later in case we have been able to add some additional resource suggestions):
All the questions of the regional competition will be drawn from Neuroscience: Science of the Brain, published by the European Dana Alliance for the Brain in many different languages.
For the national competition, the questions will come from Neuroscience: Science of the Brain, Brain Facts book released by the Society for Neurosciences and Neuroscience: Exploring the Brain (Bear, Connors & Paradiso), especially Chapters 7, 7a, 15, and 22.
