Let’s get inside our heads! 

The science behind brains & minds with Associate Professor Jill Newby & Associate Professor Yen Ying Lim  

The human brain has many complexities, with so many different areas to study.  

Jill is a leading expert on the technology-based treatment of depression, and anxiety in adults, and leads a program of research into e-mental health, smartphone apps, and virtual reality interventions. Her research aims to improve the lives of people living with depression and anxiety through developing new and improved treatments.  

Yen’s research aims to improve the lives of people living with Alzheimer’s disease, and those who are at-risk, by understanding the contribution of genetic, biological, and lifestyle risk and protective factors on cognitive decline and disease progression in Alzheimer’s disease. Her research is also focused on the design and development of digital tests, platforms and interventions for the early detection of cognitive dysfunction in Alzheimer’s disease 

Join us to hear about their journeys to becoming scientists looking into two specialty areas that affect the brain.
