Packed Lunch: Teenage Brains


Drop in

Wednesday 4 October 2017


Which parts of our brain are involved in decision making, problem solving and risk taking? Is this different during adolescence? Might a better understanding of how our brains work enable us to improve the way we approach education in school – for example in science and maths reasoning – and beyond? Join Iroise Dumontheil to hear more about the teenage brain and the emerging field of educational neuroscience.


Iroise Dumontheil, cognitive neuroscientist, Birkbeck, University of London

This event is FREE. First come, first seated. Please note that these events can get busy. Doors open 12.45.
