We’re delighted to welcome, all the way from Los Angeles, world-leading neuroscientist and neurosurgeon Dr Rahul Jandial who draws on his years of work with disorders and illnesses to reveal what this can tell us about the science of the mind.  His book Life Lessons from a Brain Surgeon makes suggestions on how to:

  • boost your memory
  • control stress and emotions
  • minimize pain
  • unleash your creativity
  • raise smart kids
  • reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s

From stories of a languages teacher who has to choose whether to lose her ability to speak Spanish or English after brain surgery, to a former TV exec, now homeless, who discovers that his life-altering despondency is the result of a tumour, to a fainting teen who learns that deep breathing can mean the difference between life or death, these stories uncover the secret workings of the brain.

Blending cutting-edge research and beautiful storytelling, Life Lessons from a Brain Surgeon is a vital resource on the best ways to boost your memory, control stress and emotions, minimise pain, unleash your creativity, raise smart kids and reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s. This is a deeply practical and readable book, which will take you on an expedition through the anatomy of the most fascinating – and mysterious – of organs.

The ticket price also includes a copy of the book.
