Biomedical ethicist explores linkages between brain, mind and soul

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:

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, anchor and interviewer is at:
