On Tuesday 9th May at 16:30, you will have the chance to watch the live streaming (by clicking here) of the conference ‘Brain development: mental genius and illness’ (‘Desarrollo cerebral: genialidad y enfermedad mental’) with Dr Óscar Marín, who completed his PhD in biology at the Complutense University in Madrid, and is the Head of the Centre for Developmental Neurobiology at the MRC in King’s College London. He was the winner of the Banco Sabadell Award for Biomedical Research in 2008 and is currently a member of the jury. Dr Marín will explain how changes in the structure of the human brain could be the source of outstanding abilities and mental illnesses.

Dr Óscar Marín won the third Banco Sabadell Award for Biomedical Research for his research in the field of neuroscience, which has been used in various projects focusing on the development of the brain and the anomalies that take place during this process, which have been shown to lead, on some occasions, to mental disorders such as autism and schizophrenia.
