The Happy Brain, by Dr Dean Burnett

The Happy Brain, by Dr Dean Burnett


Many things make us happy: laughter, success, love, sex, fried cheese etc. But what is it about these things that our brains like so much? And why? In this launch event for his book "The Happy Brain" (the follow up to his unexpected international smash-hit debut "The Idiot Brain") neuroscientist, comedian, author and Welshman Dr Dean Burnett delves deeply into the science that underlies our happiness, and how it all goes on in the murky workings of the cortex.

"Dean Burnett is a real funny cat. I adore him and his brain" - Whoopi Goldberg

Featuring amazing guests and book sale and signing, ahead of official release of the book on May 3rd.
