This event will introduce audience members to the exciting work Dr Juliette Cheyne of Auckland University is conducting on Autism Spectrum Disorder and Alzheimer’s disease. Dr Cheyne’s research focusses on recording brain activity in rodents. She looks specifically at how brain cells interact with one another which give researchers a better understanding of how these two-disease progress within humans.
