Playful Brains - The Neuroscience of Play
This fascinating session explores the vital role of Play in developing and growing children’s brains. The session takes delegates on a neurological journey into the child’s brain, exploring the profound importance of play for brain growth, wellbeing and even life expectancy. Looking at a range of neurological studies, Ben Kingston-Hughes makes a compelling argument that Play is not merely an optional extra for a child but a fundamental building block for every aspect of their well-being and development. This session is entertaining, thought-provoking and might just help us build the brains of the future.
