Our Evolving Team

We   work   with   a   panel   of   experts   to   ensure   that   everything   we   deliver,   discuss   and   introduce   remains   valid, reliable   and   true.   Our   advisors   are   all   based   in   academic   institutions,   and   actively   pursue   research   projects   in the   fields   of   education,   educational   neuroscience,   psychology,   and   beyond.   They   include   Professor   Michael Thomas     (Director    of    the    Centre    for    Educational    Neuroscience),    Professor    Lord    Robert    Winston     (world- renowned   scientist,   writer   and   politician)   and   Dr   Iroise   Dumontheil   (winner   of   British   Psychological   Society's Spearman Medal for psychologists who have published outstanding work) amongst others. Like    each    of    our    brains,    the    NeuroFiles    team    may    never    stop    growing.    Our    team    has    evolved    with    an impressive   synchronicity.   Paths   have   crossed   for   reasons   that   became   immediately   obvious,   as   a   journey shared   has   become   an   ever   richer   experience.   It’s   a   dynamic   process,   so   there   is   literally   no   end   in   sight.   The overall   Programme   Lead   is   Dr   Rebecca   Torrance   Jenkins ,   responsible   for   the   neuroeducation   knowledge platform   on   which   all   our   projects   are   anchored.   David   Oliver    is   our   Education   Lead.   And   David   Dickinson    is our   Healthcare   and   Patient   Lead.   These   brief   profiles   tell   just   a   small   part   of   their   stories.   Others   have generously agreed to join our team for specific strands or activities.
