WHITE MATTER and GREY MATTER

At the monthly meeting on 10th March members were treated to a presentation by Dr David Finkelstein from the Florey Institute of Neuroscience and Mental Health. He gave a fascinating presentation about research into and treatment of Parkinson's Disease and also spoke about Alzheimer's Disease. His emphasis was on encouraging affected people everywhere to ensure they were seeking expert advice and only using evidence based treatments. Following his presentation there was a lively question and answer session, followed by a review of the ikebana created that morning on the theme 'White and Grey Matter'. Three examples are shown below
