Suzanne O'Sullivan

Cartagena 2017, 
Los casos más sorprendentes y perturbadores de los males que el cerebro puede infligir a nuestro propio cuerpo son investigados por la neuróloga Suzanne O´Sullivan en Todo está en tu cabeza. La mayoría aceptamos sin problema que el corazón palpite con fuerza cuando vemos a la persona que amamos secretamente, o la sudoración que brota en nuestra frente ante el nerviosismo que nos provoca tener que hablar en público. Pero lo que no llegamos a imaginar es cuán dramática y exagerada puede llegar a ser la reacción de nuestro cuerpo ante según que emociones. O’Sullivan conversa sobre el fascinante mundo de las enfermedades psicosomáticas.

Evento solo en ingles.
