By 28th June 2016 No Comments


On 7 and 8 July, YAS member Dr Silvia Paracchini will give a schools-only interactive talk at the Royal Society’s Summer Science Exhibition.  Her talk will address what determines hand preference, exploring some of the many traits that throughout history have been associated with being left handed.  Dr Paracchini will separate myths from facts about handedness, and explain what is being learned from the most important modern genetic studies.

The talk is 30 minutes long, and is available only to pre-registered school groups.  There are several time slots available between 7 and 8 July.  For more information and to register a group, please visit the Royal Society website.
