LEJOG

On 5thJuly I’ll be setting off on what’s called LEJOG – a 10 day cycle from Lands’ End to John O’Groats. The main objective is to raise money for research into the treatment of brain conditions, but to give something back as a token of thanks for your generous donations there’s the option of downloading a book that I’ve written called SPIN. It’s not a literary masterpiece, but you might find bits interesting. There is some local history and also simple explanations of how scanners work.  I’ve made suggestions to tackle one of the biggest challenges that we face in working life – the growth in bureaucracy. The book looks at some research into stroke, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s Disease, brain cancer and several other conditions, at how research is organised, and where the money comes from? There are also a few lighthearted stories to brighten it up at bit. You might want to find out why the title is SPIN, and you must have a look at the illustrations, courtesy of students at Glasgow Kelvin College.
 

The book is on www.neurosciencesfoundation.org.uk and www.sinapse.ac.uk. You can download it without donating, but who would do that! The value of donating to small charities is explained in the book in the section about the Neurosciences Foundation.
