Abstract: Lynne Malcolm is a science journalist and broadcaster with a deep passion and fascination for people, their behavior and the workings of the human mind. During the last nine years of her 38-year career at the ABC she produced and presented the ABC radio program podcast All in the Mind. In her recent book All in the Mind – fascination, inspiring and transformative stories from the forefront of brain science, she draws on her research and interviews with neuroscientists, psychiatrists, psychologists and people with lived experience of mental health challenges to discover how new knowledge is not only changing the way we understand the brain but is also changing lives.
In her presentation she will discuss some of her insights into how the brain and mind work, living with mental difference and debilitating mental conditions, and new pathways to healing, through some of the powerful stories she has had the privilege to hear in the course of her career.
