University of Helsinki presents
The capacity and abilities of the human brain may seem magical, but scientific research into their function is progressing rapidly. At Think Corner we get ready to bust some myths and turn cutting edge information from the pages of scientific journals into easy-to-understand sessions and discussions. Specialists focusing on different parts of the brain, linguists, learning researchers, doctors, sleep and trauma researchers and a host of other experts discuss their latest research finds and what they mean to our day-to-day lives.
