Social Brain 2: See the Bigger Picture
March 2006, Glasgow Royal Concert Hall, Glasgow
Mindroom joined forces with Professor Christopher Gillberg in organising our third major international conference.
Some forty experts from around the world debated the social brain and disorders of social development - including autism, Asperger syndrome, ADHD, dyslexia, DAMP and related conditions. They talked about the understanding of learning difficulties - and how best to live with them.
Leading specialists in neurobiology, genetics, child development, psychiatry, psychology and education covered anything from the brain's basis for sociability and social interactions to clinical, social, psychological and experimental aspects of neuro-psychiatric conditions.
Quite simply, we brought together science and medicine, health and education, theory and practice over two very exciting days.

Leading specialists revealed the science behind conditions such as autism, Asperger syndrome, ADHD, dyslexia, DAMP - and discussed how best to live with them.
Combining theory and practice, the conference ranged from talks on new dental treatments to personal presentations about living with learning difficulties. Delegate Melanie Harris says: “I found the whole event very powerful, very stimulating, very inspiring. What was amazing was that in among these all the doctors, professors, academics, parents, educators, and health professionals were sprinkled the very people about whom we were all gathered together.”
Some of the unique presentations made at The Social Brain 2: See the Bigger Picture are now available on DVD.
