From the 13th March there are a series of public lectures and events around the world as part of 'International Brain Awareness Week'. I can personally recommend one particular event in the UK that should be a treat for those keen to get an insight into the brain sciences.
Dr Ashok Jansari, a leading researcher in neuropsychology, will be giving a free public lecture at the University of East London on Wednesday 15th March at 6pm. This will be followed by a chance to meet some of the patients Dr Jansari has been researching, as well as organisations that help people with brain damage.
Full details of the event are available from the UEL website.
Making Habits, Breaking Habits

The Bookseller, “Editor’s Pick,” 10/12/12 “Sensible and very readable…By far the most useful of this month’s New You offerings.”
Kirkus Reviews, 1/1/13 “Making changes does take longer than we may expect—no 30-day, 30-pounds-lighter quick fix—but by following the guidelines laid out by Dean, readers have a decent chance at establishing fulfilling, new patterns.”
Publishers Weekly, 12/10/12 “An accessible and informative guide for readers to take control of their lives.”
