Baroness Greenfield was invited to speak at Hebrew University in Jerusalem on Thursday 20th June. The talk she gave was titled 'Novel intra-nasal delivery of a synthetic peptide as a treatment for Alzheimer's disease'. Within this presentation Baroness Greenfield discussed Neuro-Bio's research and how we are working towards a new treatment for Alzheimer's Disease.
Susan spoke to the Godolphin and Latymer Ancient World Breakfast Club on the title ‘Greek Tragedy from a Neuroscientific Perspective’. The AWBC is an educational forum run by the school which is open to any member of the general public and which explores on a weekly basis during term a wide variety of topics relating to the ancient world. It was wonderful to welcome Susan back as an old girl of the school, and one who had studied Latin, Greek, and Ancient History at A Level. She combined her lifelong love of Classics with her professional expertise in neuroscience to explore the different psychological approaches taken to characterisation by the three great Athenian tragic playwrights: Aeschylus, Sophocles, and Euripides. The talk was extremely well received and engendered a lively question and answer session at the end. The school is very grateful to Baroness Greenfield for giving up her time and considerable expertise for this occasion.
