Why we need to feed the injured brain

Dr Rebecca Denniss (Researcher, Psychology)
Approximately 1 million people go to A&E with some form of head injury each year. I will explain what happens at a cellular level within the brain following an injury and why vitamins, minerals and omega-3 might be one way we can limit the damage that is caused. You will learn how these micronutrients play a vital role in the functioning of your brain, and how eating well now could help you if, one day, you should hurt your head.

Unrest while Resting? Brain differences in Autism

Wenyi Xiao (Psychology Department, researcher)
Our brain is super smart and hard-working, it never stops working even when we sleep. Generally, our brain adapts to the ever-changing environment and performs various mental and cognitive activities. However, if such adaptability is impaired, as in Autism, the brain may work differently. In this talk, I will show you the human brains of people with and without Autism. Let’s voyage into the brain!
