Early life experiences and the adult mind

Early life experiences and the adult mind

This past event was fully booked!

Part of the Festival of Social Science in Aberdeen

Ever wondered how early life experiences can shape the adult mind? The environment we are exposed to in our younger years has been linked to intelligence and success in later life. But why is this the case? Is it epigenetics? Unlike classical genetics which are determined by the genetics of the parents, epigenetics can be influenced by the environment. Learn about this exciting new field and our state of the art study which is bridging the gap between the social and biological sciences.
