Join cognitive neuroscientist Gina Rippon as she exposes the myth of the gendered brain.

The Department of Respiratory Sciences is pleased to announce that Professor Gina Rippon will present a lecture on 'The Gendered Brain' next month.

Professor Gina Rippon is an international researcher in the field of cognitive neuroscience. Her research involves the use of state-of-the-art brain imaging techniques to investigate developmental disorders. She is a regular contributor to events such as the British Science Festival, New Scientist Live and the Sceptics in the Pub series.

Earlier this year, Gina published The Gendered Brain, a detailed collection of neuroscience researching shattering the myth behind the ‘female brain’. The book was described by Rachel Cooke in The Observer as having the power to be a ‘revolution’ for gender equality.

Gina will use the opportunity to reflect on her first book intended for general readers.

The event will take place on Wednesday 3 April at 12noon-1.00pm in Lecture Theatre 2: George Davies Centre.
