Jamie Mcloughlin, Researcher at BBC Education, approached me requesting a story about the scientific aspect of analysing doodles for their educational Bitesize website. This was timed to coincide with National Doodle Day.
We compiled a Q&A. Three doodles also came from well-known names in BBC’s Media City for me to analyse: Martin Dougan (one of the Newsround presenters), Dr Radha Modgil (Radio 1’s resident doctor), and Hacker T Dog (the CBBC character).
Find out here why we doodle and what our doodles say about us? Is it something our brains are trained to do, or is it something more subliminal? You can also read my snapshot analyses for the three ‘guinea pigs’!
