Join us in November for the final cafe of the year! The Gendered Brain: Pink and Blue or Fifty Shades of Grey Matter?
We welcome Professor Georgina Rippon, Professor Emeritus of Cognitive NeuroImaging, at Aston Brain Centre. Her talk aims to open up discussion about how (and why) we arrived at the myth of the female or the male brain. Blending insights from cognitive and social neuroscience and from developmental and social psychology, we’ll see if we can break free of stereotypes and offer our brains a better future.
Professor Rippon is the author of 'The Gendered Brain: The new neuroscience that shatters the myth of the female brain ' and has spent nearly 20 years at Aston University researching brain function.
Café Scientifique takes place at Purecraft Bar. Located downstairs, the room has seating for 50 and capacity for up to 70 people. Food and drink can be ordered from the dedicated bar. The room can only be accessed from the main bar stairs.
