Event details

This stimulating and fun event aims to encourage enquiry, debate and even controversy as leading academics give 5-minute presentations on issues relating to the brain and society before throwing the field open to all-comers.

Hear about the issue of criminal responsibility for acts
performed whilst intoxicated; how too much selfcontrol,
while valued by society, can lead to problems like
depression and anorexia; addiction to alcohol and the
problem for medicine/ the medical profession; whether
or not we still have a hunter’s brain inside an urban body;
memory loss ; how taking responsibility to look after the
blood vessels of our brain may help to prevent Alzheimer’s.
Come and debate with our experts! Chaired by Professor
Alex Neill (Philosophy).
