|7.30pm Main Event||
Autism and Asperger's Syndrome - A Different Type of Brain
This month we'll be showning video of a presentation given recently to the Bournemouth group by Dr Rachel Moseley. Rachel is a Researcher in Social, Cognitive, Clinical and Affective Neuroscience (SCCAN) in the Psychology Department at Bournemouth University and a regular attender at DAAS events. In this fascinating talk, she offers new insights into some of the features of the autistic brain and their basis for differences in behaviours. Whether or not you are on the spectrum, this video should provide greater understanding and plenty of food for thought.
|And Finally .....||Time to network, chat, seek advice or help, bring news to the group etc.|
|End of meeting||Grateful thanks for helping us ready the Café for the following morning :)|
