EVENT POSTPONED: It is with regret that we have decided to postpone our remaining Brain Awareness Month events due to the continuing outbreak of the Covid-19 coronavirus. All our remaining events throughout March and April are currently postponed until further notice.

We know that many people were looking forward to these presentations from researchers that the Neurological Foundation has been able to fund through the donations of so many of our supporters. We hope to be able to advise of plans for new events in the near future.

In the interim, we will be working to film as many presentations as possible and bring these to you online so that we can continue to share the latest neurological research updates with you. You can sign up to our email newsletter to be updated with the latest news and videos here: https://neurological.org.nz/email-sign-up.

Thank you for your understanding.

 


 

Dr Nadia Borlase is currently researching identifying neurological vulnerability in relation to trauma and developmental disorders. The Canterbury earthquakes specifically is what Dr Borlase is currently studying and how neuroimaging can help identify the long-term impacts of the earthquakes.  

Please note: This event addresses the Canterbury Earthquake sequence and the long term impacts of that on the people of Canterbury and may be upsetting for some people.
