Speakers and Facilitators


Professor Michael Maier

Professor Maier is a Consultant Psychiatrist, Director of Medical Education and Head of London School of Psychiatry. He is the Curator of the Corsellis Brain Collection. The collection contains a large number of brains from patients who had psychiatric and neurodegenerative illnesses, but also a series of brains from patients who did not have any brain disease and who therefore provide a very useful control population.

Professor Brian Hughes

Professor Hughes, of the School of Psychology at the National University of Ireland, Galway. His research and publications have focused on psychological stress (particularly its impact on cardiovascular psychophysiology, immunity, and health) and on psychosocial moderators of stress processes (such as social support, cognition, and personality). His work on how the human cardiovascular response habituates across repeated stress exposures has been extensively cited. He also writes widely on the psychology of empiricism and of empirically disputable claims, especially as they pertain to science, health, and medicine.
