The Neuroscience of Anxiety on Wednesday 8th February 2023
Fear is normal. A healthy part of who we are as humans and yet, when it paralyses us, it’s anything but. Today 1 in 3 of us experience an anxiety disorder in our lifetimes. We all know what anxiety feels like. But what we often don’t know is what’s really going on inside when we’re feeling anxious.
So what’s happening in our brains during all that panic, and all those fears?
Dr Jonathan Iliff is a psychiatrist and neuroscientist. He’s a fellow warrior (and worrier) in the war against anxiety - and he’s here to help. In this talk we’re going to be opening up the brain to understand it better. We’ll see where anxiety disorders happen in the brain, what molecules drive them, and how this relates to those thoughts and fears that buzz around our brains each day.
Most importantly we’ll learn what this teaches us about managing our own minds and our own emotions. With a little learning we can see through a few more paper tigers; and grow out of anxiety, and into confidence
Come on in. Let’s explore some marvellous things.
Doors open at 7pm, talk starts at 7.30pm - come down early to grab a good seat!
