About this event

  • Date and time Wed 24 May 2023 from 6:00pm to 8:00pm
  • Location Royal Society of Medicine
  • Organised by History of Medicine Society

This meeting encourages participants to consider the path of development within cardiac surgery. In this event, we will also assess how brain function and autonomy have evolved over three centuries. You will understand how the structure and function of the brain have adapted to change, including the principles that govern it.

Join this session to hear the presidential address perspective on a new idea of an old idea of the brain from Dr Christopher Gardner-Thorpe, President, History of Medicine Society, Royal Society of Medicine. Hear fascinating topics such as A journey through heart surgery from Professor Stuart Jamieson, Cardiac Surgeon, University of California San Diego.

Participants will be able to:

  • Understand in more detail the scientific and clinical methods that have led to the significant advances in heart surgery
  • Understand the hierarchy of structure and function in the brain and its application to the everyday function
