How to change your brain

Using worm brains to understand our own with Dr Yee Lian Chew.

Yee Lian explores how learning and gaining new memories can change chemical signals between brain cells. She uses worm brains to understand these chemical changes, hoping that we can translate it to the much bigger human brain. This may change the way we manage and treat conditions like neurodegeneration and chronic pain.

Join us to hear about Yee Lian’s journey to becoming a neuroscientist.
