VANCOUVER, March 30, 2015 /CNW/ - With 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. Shaughnessy Heights United Church is hosting a talk on April 12, 2015 at 7:30 pm that will examine the fascinating inter-connections between brain, mind and soul.
Join 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 as these linkages evolve through the seasons of our life even while certain dimensions remain constant as others change.
