The country’s top brain scientist is delivering this year’s Bishop Sir Paul Reeves Memorial Lecture. Professor Richard Faull directs the Centre for Brain Research at the University of Auckland. He is recognised internationally as a leading expert in neurodegenerative diseases of the human brain. He is arguably best-known for demonstrating that adult brain cells are not, in fact, finite and can be replaced if they die – giving hope to those with neurodegenerative diseases and brain injuries. In his lecture Imagine Tomorrow’s World, Professor Faull will outline the progress of brain research in this country and the prospects for development of further treatments. The lecture is on September 12 from 7.30pm at the Holy Trinity Cathedral in Parnell. Visit reeveslecture.event brite.co.nz for tickets.
