Members of the public can hear a leading brain specialist talk about neurodevelopment and neuropathology during a special event hosted at St George's International School.

Dr Guy Sutton will offer the evening workshop for parents, staff and the general public on October 13.

St George's have invited the specialist as part of brain awareness week for the fourth year running.

During his trip, Dr Sutton will meet psychology students to explain more about general health, genetics and neuroscience, covering subjects such as forensic and clinical psychology, criminal profiling and offender populations, schizophrenia and informed about the latest ground-breaking research in neurobiology.

Guy Sutton's primary areas of interest are the genetics of neurodevelopment and neuropathology and the interactive nature of genetic, biological and behavioural factors in chronic disease processes.

In addition to his role as Director of MBI, he is Honorary Lecturer at the University of Nottingham Medical School, where he contributes to teaching medical students at undergraduate and postgraduate level.

Previous academic appointments have been held at Manchester, Manchester Metropolitan and Cambridge Universities.

Spaces at the public event are limited so interested individuals should register early to avoid disappointment.

The workshop runs from 5.30pm to 7.30pm. Entrance is free but donations will be gratefully accepted and all proceeds will go to the school's chosen charity. To book your place, please email Jackie Moody on j.moody@st-georges.lu
