On of our past BACN presidents Professor Gina Rippon has just brought out her new book ‘The Gendered Brain: The new neuroscience that shatters the myth of the female brain’. The book offers a scientific insight into the make-up of the human brain, refuting some of the long-standing ideas on the inferior make-up of the female brain. If you are interested in learning more about the brain and the cognition and behaviour that results from its make-up, this book offers and excellent insight that is interesting and accessible for a range of readers with different levels of neuroscientific knowledge. A link to the book on amazon can be found here. For a review of the book click here.

We are also very excited to announce that Gina’s book will be awarded to our poster prize winners at this years 2019 Cambridge conference! Our thanks go to Gina for generously providing some of her books as prizes.
