With Dr Jim Stinear, Tuesday 26 May 2015 7:30 - 8:30pm.

Physical IN-activity is a global health problem. It is well known that lack of exercise adversely impacts our cardiovascular health. But did you know that lack of exercise reduces the number of neurons in our brains, and also dulls our memory and our ability to resolve conflict? This presentation will describe the science of exercise and brain health, and provide you with some simple and low stress tips on how to “preserve your brain”.

Dr Jim Stinear is the Academic Director of postgraduate programmes in Exercise- and Neuro-rehabilitation at the University of Auckland, and a member of the Centre for Brain Research. Dr Stinear leads the Master of Science in Clinical Exercise Physiology programme, and conducts research on how the brain recovers control of walking after stroke.
