Press release issued: 22 January 2002

Psychology and Personal Health

Tomorrow sees the first of four free lunchtime public lectures at which Dr John Barrett, Bristol University academic and experimental psychologist, will explore the links between physical and psychological health.

The first lecture [January 23] Breakfast and brains, discusses the connections between healthy eating and healthy brains. On January 30 Nature and nurture looks at the mix of genes, intelligence and personality. Stress and personal health on February 6 demonstrates that stress is actually necessary for human health - provided it is kept at the right level. Finally, on February 13, Ageing - the good news proves the old adage about old dogs and new tricks is wrong - retirement can be a very productive time to learn new skills and abilities.

Arranged by Bristol University's Public Programmes Office, all the talks take place on Wednesdays from 12 noon to 1 pm at Westbury-on-Trym Village Hall, Eastfield Road, Westbury-on-Trym, Bristol, and there's no need to book.
