The Social Brain: Better Brain Health at Work

9th June 2016



Book Now

How does the workplace affect what goes on in our brains? What can we do to fire up the neurons in our brains and keep ourselves learning, emotionally healthy, intellectually challenged and engaged? What neuroscience signals suggest we would benefit from developing a new approach to work? When might a career change be in order?

The Social Brain offers an opportunity to craft gorgeous textile neurons with Neural Knitworks and listen to a panel of brain and mind experts discuss current research into the social brain.

Craft neurons from 5pm, panel discussion from 6pm.
