Are you curious about the brain? Would you like to learn more about brain injury and recovery?
Join Kings College in a journey to discover what is in James Piercy’s mind. In “What’s going on in his head” James, who was involved in a serious road accident and suffered a traumatic brain injury, will tell us his story:
“I have been extremely lucky, made an amazing recovery, and along the way I have learned a lot about brains and trauma. ‘What’s going on in his head?’ is an illustrated talk about my journey from the dual carriageway, through hospital and back to something like normal life. I will shed light on head injury ‘the hidden disability’ and to uncover just what we do and don’t know about the 3lbs of white and grey matter in our heads”
This event, supported by Wellcome Trust, is presented at venues across the country and comes to the Institute of Psychiatry, King’s College London as part of the Engaging Mental Health initiative on 11th of June at 6.30pm.
The performance is suitable for those aged 14+, it lasts one hour and will be followed by Q&A session.
This talk is free to anyone and booking is essential.
