Western Psychology says you are what you think

A series of public lectures, launching this week, featuring faculty members from Western University’s Psychology Department will examine how human brains and minds – even in adulthood – are more malleable or plastic than previously recognized.

Western Psychology’s fifth annual “Psychology: The Science of Being Human” public lecture series, titled “The Changing Mind: You are What You Think,” begins Thursday, April 4 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at London Central Library (251 Dundas Street).
