Why Do We Yawn? – NEXT CAFE SCIENTIFIQUE – TUESDAY 5th FEBRUARY
Yawning consistently poses a conundrum to the medical profession. Myths about why we yawn include helping us breathe better, refreshing our lungs, and gaining more oxygen for the blood stream. In fact, yawning is more of a mystery to us than we first thought; research at Bournemouth University has revealed some curious findings that may lead to new help in the diagnosis of neurological disorders in the future.
This talk will be given by Dr Simon B N Thompson, Associate Professor of Clinical Psychology & Neuropsychology, Psychology Research Centre & Dementia Institute, Bournemouth University
Doors open at Café Boscanova at 6.30pm – 650 Christchurch Rd, Bournemouth, BH1 4BP (get there early to secure a seat!), and the talk will start at around 7.30pm. Drinks and light snacks will be available for sale.
