Edinburgh Neuroscience Christmas Public Lecture - Understanding Disorders of the Developing Brain in the 21st Century

 

Thursday, 14 December, 2017

Professor Peter Kind (Centre for Discovery Brain Sciences, Patrick Wild Centre,  and Simons Initiative for the Developing Brain) delivered the 12th Edinburgh Neuroscience Public Christmas Lecture last night. Over 200 people attended a great talk about 'Understanding Disorders of the Developing Brain in the 21st Century’. Peter started his talk with a very moving series of films which highlighted the severity for the developmental disorders affecting children with different genetic mutations before outlining the research being undertaken at the Univeristy of Edinburgh's Patrick Wild Centre and Simons Initiative for the Developing Brain to try and understand these disorders. The talk was filmed and we hope to make it available online in the New Year.
