Liisa Galea will be speaking at Science World on Nov. 11, 2010 at 6:30 pm.  The title of the talk is Boy Brains vs. Girl Brains.


Boy Brains vs. Girl Brains
Can girls do anything boys can do better? Explore the differences between the male brain and the female brain with Dr. Liisa Galea from the Laboratory of Behavioural Neuroendocrinology, Department of Psychology at UBC. The impact of hormones on our brains and mind are important- as anyone who has gone through puberty, menopause or pregnancy can attest! Dr. Galea is interested in how hormones (such as testosterone, estrogens and stress hormones) affect brain and behaviour and how/why gender increases vulnerability to getting particular brain diseases.

Science World, Thursday, November 11 6:30–7:30pm
