  • 23rd October 2018


    You've probably already noticed you're not like others! But why is this and how did we end up the way we are? Leading neuroscientist Kevin J Mitchell is in the UK on 23rd October to explain how both human diversity and individual difference has its roots in the wirings of our brains.

    Enjoy a glass of wine with us at this Super Salon and let Kevin guide you through his new groundbreaking research. He'll explain how the variations in the way our brains develop before birth strongly influence our psychology and behavior throughout our lives - shaping our personality, intelligence, sexuality, and even the way we perceive the world. A perspective which turns the nature vs nurture debate on its head.

    This is an astonishing chance to hear from the neuroscientist, Trinity College Professor, and author of Innate: How the Wiring of Our Brains Shapes Who We Are in this intimate Salon at 12 Hay Hill in Mayfair. Tickets £12 or £27 including 'Innate' the book (RRP £24).

    Doors open 6:30pm. Talk start at 7pm. Tickets can be purchased here.
