    Tag der SinneScientists of the Collaborative Research Center 889 have participated in public discussion events and organized two major public outreach events. On September 18th 2011 and March 17th 2013, CRC 889 researchers invited the Göttingen public for experiments and lectures on the senses ("Tag der Sinne"). At 22 different set-ups various experiments on stimuli and sensory processing were performed by and on approximately 300 children, adolescents and adults together with the experts.
