Freud's Divide: Bridging the Brain Mind Gap | World Science Festival Brisbane

South Brisbane, Brisbane Area

21 March 2018 - 

Indicative Rate * AU$10 to AU$35

Explore the nexus of neuroscience and psychiatry.

In the early 20th century, the Freud-inspired distinction between brain and mind generated two approaches to understanding the human brain: neuroscience and psychiatry. Recently, advances in medical research and scientific technologies have identified common features across neurological disorders that challenge Freud’s divide.

Australia’s Chief Scientist Alan Finkel leads a distinguished panel of neuroscientists, psychiatrists and biologists in unpacking the latest scientific approaches to understanding and treating brain disorders. They will also examine whether the science in this area is living up to its promise when it comes to improving human health.

Freud’s Divide: Bridging the Brain-Mind Gap is presented in conjunction with The University of Queensland.
