The Brain Matters

Four FREE public events | Auckland | Wellington | Christchurch | Dunedin


To celebrate the Neurological Foundation’s 40th anniversary of funding neurological research, four very special FREE public events were held from Tuesday 30 October through to Wednesday 7 November 2012.

The Brain Matters series has been a huge success and the Neurological Foundation's largest event programme to date. The response in each city was overwhelming with a total of over 2000 attendees across the nation. The dynamic panels kept audiences enthralled as they discussed the remarkable progress of neurological research in New Zealand and the innovative and promising work being carried out today. A Q&A segment gave the public a unique opportunity to interact with the speakers. Thank you for helping us to celebrate our 40th anniversary!
