Brain Boggling Behaviour (Malta Cafe Sci Talk)

The next science talk in Malta on the boggling brain.

Brain Boggling

The Malta Neuroscience Network has been founded to help the study of  the human brain, the most complex organ on Earth.  This complexity means it can go wrong easily. A lot of research is trying to understand this mind-boggling behaviour and what factors or triggers can make it go haywire. Professor John Stein (Oxford University) has dedicated his life to neuroscience trying to understand how the brain works and what makes it tick.

Date: Tuesday 21st April
Time: At 7.30pm (doors open at 7.15pm)
Venue: Cinema Room, St James Cavalier, Valletta

He will talk about modern techniques that help us understand the brain, the brain’s plasticity and the genetics which affect day to day activities. Dr Stein will also talk about deep brain stimulation to identify tremors, dyskinesias (involuntary movements) and pain, as well as to discussing how the cerebellum controls our motor functions.
