World Encephalitis Day 2014

The Encephalitis Society teamed up with the Institute of Infection and Global Health at the University of Liverpool to break a world record during the inaugural World Encephalitis Day on February 22, 2014.

A total of 687 volunteers - hailing from from 38 countries and aged from one month to 83-years-old - donned coloured ponchos to form the largest ever brain made out of people.

The world record attempt was choreographed by local arist Mike Badger and Daisy Solomon, the daughter of Professor Tom Solomon, the director of the institute.
