We work with groups of women, men and gender-diverse individuals to explore how their brains and behaviour react and respond when they experience sex-specific health conditions, medical treatments or social practices.
Learn more about neuroscience, cognition, gender and health in a collection of videos featuring Dr. Gillian Einstein.
Well done to @GervNiki !
