This month’s speaker: Sir Richard Faull
Topic: The magic and excitement of the human brain
Sir Richard Faull is a neuroscientist and is highly regarded internationally for his research into the workings of the human brain.
He is founder and director of the University of Auckland's Centre for Brain Research (CBR), director of the Neurological Foundation Human Brain Bank at the CBR, and instigated the annual Brain Day that invites the community to the campus to learn more about neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and Huntington's diseases.
He was made a Knight Companion of the New Zealand Order of Merit in the New Year Honours list 2017 for services to brain research.
Because Sir Richard’s talk is so important, we have invited members of local organisations to attend the talk along with U3A members.
