About This Event


Event Description:

<p>Join us to explore the topics that affect all our lives&#8230;in the pub! No prior knowledge required, just BYOB (bring your own brain).</p>
<p>Next event: Brain Training on Trial, with Alan Gow</p>
<p>Many people spend their hard-earned cash on games promising to protect their thinking skills as they get older. Maybe you&#8217;ve tried those but are still forgetting what you went into that room for! Then come and put brain training on trial. Be our prosecution, defence and jury as we examine the claims that brain training games protect your brain. Hear the evidence for and against their claims. As you question the evidence with Alan Gow (Heriot-Watt University), what will your verdict be: brain training, proven or not?</p>
<p>In association with Heriot-Watt Psychology, Heriot Watt Psychology Society and Heriot-Watt University Student Union.</p>
