The illness arises from a complex interplay of genetic and environmental factors that pose a mystery to neuroscientists. During this talk\, we’ll explore schizophrenia at the microscopic level\, examine the cellular clues that may help our understanding\, and discuss what we might learn about schizophrenia from experiments in a petri dish. \nAbout the speaker:\nAshleigh is a neuroscience PhD student at the University of Glasgow researching the biological underpinnings of schizophrenia. \n\nView event on Facebook or Meetup \n\nDoors at 7.15\, kickoff at 7.30\nThis is event is free to attend\, although we will be asking for donations at the end of the talk. Participants are under no obligation whatsoever to donate\, however please rest assured that the money we collect doesn’t end up in anyone’s pocket – it is used to fund our overhead costs\, and travel/accommodation for our speakers who come from further afield. \n\nAccessibility: As per the policy of the Admiral Bar\, access to the venue “can only be provided to patrons who are sufficiently mobile and capable of independently evacuating premises\, or with the minimum of assistance”.
