This month's SciBar talk will be given by Dr Peter Naish from the Open University Department of Psychology, who will explore the profound impact of child abuse on mental health. 

He will consider what mechanisms could be affecting the brains of victims so powerfully, drawing links with post-traumatic stress disorder, schizophrenia and hypnosis. He will also explain how the effects could be passed on to the next generation by epigenetic inheritance. 

The talk will be followed by Q&A.

About the Cambridgeshire Branch

The Cambridgeshire branch seeks to achieve that by connecting science with people: promoting openness about science in society and affirming science as a prime cultural force through engaging and inspiring adults and young people directly with science and technology and their implications.

The Cambridgeshire branch of the British Science Association welcomes volunteers with any level of knowledge and enthusiasm for STEMM (science, technology, engineering, maths and medicine) public engagement to join our outreach efforts. We run fun events to connect with people of all ages.
