God and the Brain

Alasdair Coles will be speaking on the topic of "God and the Brain" at 9pm on Wednesday 27th April in the Solarium, AA staircase, Queens' College. Refreshments are provided and ALL are welcome.

The Rvd Dr Alasdair Coles is a lecturer in neuroimmunology at Cambridge University and an honorary consultant neurologist to Addenbrooke's and Hinchingbrooke Hospitals. His main scientific work concerns new treatments for multiple sclerosis. However, he is also interested in the neurological basis for religious experience, something that arose from managing a small cohort of patients with spiritual experiences due to temporal lobe epilepsy. Alasdair was ordained in the Church of England in 2008 and is now a curate at St Andrews Church, Cambridge, alongside his medical and scientific work.
