VANCOUVER, April 8, 2015 /CNW/ - The consistency of tofu and home to
about 100 billion neurons, the human brain is a remarkable yet
mysterious part of our being. Research in neuroplasticity reveals new
hopeful insights about the self-healing nature of our brain and
indications are growing that there are fascinating interconnections
between the brain, mind and soul.
Shaughnessy Heights United Church is hosting a talk on April 12, 2015 at
7:30 pm with Dr. Grant Gillett, PhD world-renowned neuroscientist and
biomedical ethicist from the University of Otago, New Zealand to
consider the philosophic interconnection of brain and spirit and how
these linkages evolve through the seasons of our life - certain
dimensions remaining constant even as others change.
Details on Dr. Gillett's broad scholarship in medicine, psychology,
neurosurgery and philosophy are at: http://www.otago.ac.nz/healthsciences/expertise/profile.
Award-winning journalist Ian Hanomansing, host of CBC News Now, will be
our moderator for the evening. More on his body of work as a reporter,
