Information about the brain and how it grows to reach its full potential has exploded into our awareness over the past twenty plus years. Allowing us to understand the workings of the human brain like never before.

The 1990’s were called the ‘decade of the brain’ due to significant advancements in scanning technologies; such as brain scans. In 2003 they successfully mapped the genome. Since then we have been provided with a wonder of insight into how the human brain works and develops as we grow.

Nathan Wallis, a renowned neuroscience educator, has developed a profound reputation as a lively and engaging speaker who uses humor and plain language to make this complex topic burst into life.
