Darwin@LSE Public Lecture
Date: Tuesday 15 March 2005
Venue: Old Theatre, Old Building
Speaker: Professor Simon Baron-Cohen
Chair: Professor Simon Blackburn
What can sex differences tell us about autism - and vice versa? Autism affects males far more than females. Might it be an extreme of the male brain - male brains being more interested in systemising, female brains more in empathising?
Simon Baron-Cohen is professor of developmental psychopathology and director of the Autism Research Centre at the University of Cambridge. His recent book The Essential Difference: men, women and the extreme male brain is a highly acclaimed best seller.
This event is free and open to all with no ticket required. Entry is on a first come, first serve basis.
