About PARKS at ONE
PARKS at ONE is a series of monthly lunchtime talks which aim to connect the Christian faith with the everyday lives of those who work on the Cambridge Science, Innovation and Business Parks.
Everyone is welcome – whether you would call yourself a Christian believer or you are just interested in finding out more about the Christian faith.
We meet at 1pm in the Trinity Centre conference suite on the Science Park and finish by 1.35pm allowing you to get on with your working day.
Food and drink can be purchased from the cafe adjacent to the conference suite or you are welcome to bring your own food and eat during the talk.

God and the brain
Can science teach us anything useful about how we relate to and experience God? How does the brain process the concept of a God? Can neuroscience tell us anything about our religious beliefs and experiences ? Is there a special 'God–spot' in the human brain that allows us to communicate with God?
Our speaker is Prof Alasdair Coles, an academic neurologist at Cambridge University and a consultant neurologist working at Addenbrookes hospital. He is considered a world expert on the immunology and treatment of multiple sclerosis. Alasdair has also conducted research on the neurological basis for religious experience and is editing a book on religion in neurological disease for Cambridge Univesity Press. Alasdair is both a scientist and a person of faith, serving at Addenbrookes hospital in the capacity of an ordained hospital chaplain.
Do join us if you can for what will be an exceptional talk.
