Dr. Guy Sutton: Bringing the Thrill of Brain Science to Tiffin Psychologists.

On a bright Thursday morning, the charismatic Dr. Guy Sutton burst into Tiffin School armed with his captivating neuron model and a chilled box of sheep brains. It was the start of an exhilarating “Brain Day” that would ignite the passion for neuroscience in psychology students and leave them craving for more!

As an Honorary Professor in the Division of Psychiatry at the prestigious University of Nottingham School of Medicine, Dr. Sutton is no stranger to captivating audiences with his expertise. His engaging lectures at postgraduate and graduate level conferences, as well as his appearances at schools and universities, have earned him quite the reputation. Today, it was Tiffin’s turn to experience his awe-inspiring lecture series and take part in an interactive sheep brain dissection.

Throughout the day, the students delved into stimulating discussions on topics ranging from the intricate connectome to the age-old debate of determinism versus freewill. They pondered over the complexities of mental health while exploring the fascinating realms of criminality and epigenetics. Dr. Sutton never failed to push their thinking even further, challenging them to contemplate the profound nature of consciousness and the effects of recreational drugs on vulnerable brains.

As the lectures drew to a close, the students were buzzing with excitement. Their minds expanded to encompass cutting-edge technologies like cerebral organoids, brain computer interfacing, and the sci-fi-like world of cyborgs. Dr. Sutton also whisked them away on an adventure to explore NASA’s latest challenges in space travel. No doubt, his infectious enthusiasm left a lasting impact on the psychologists and biologists at Tiffin School, creating a new generation of brain nerds and sparking the fire within those who are ready to tackle the next neuroscientific marvels that await them in the future.
