Brilliant talk! Dr Machin is incredibly talented, very calm and clear speaker. It's so good to see a woman give a science talk in such a male dominated world. She really inspired me. I'd see any talk now by Dr Machin no matter what the topic. I brought a friend also with an interest in neuroscience and she loved it so much! Thank you.

Public Engagement

Thought the presentation was really interesting and well given by a person who clearly knew her subject. It is quite a gift to be able to take such a complex subject and make it accessible to an audience who may not all be academic. Thank you for a thought provoking talk that got my friend and I debating all the way home!

Public Engagement

I cannot possibly rate this experience high enough. Not only was the location amazing but Anna Machin delivered a well put together talk which left my brain buzzing with new understanding. I felt like I left with a clear picture of how love works and how my brain uses chemicals. The Q and A was unparalled. Best thing I've heard since leaving uni and showed me an exciting new time where those of us who love to learn can have rock stars of our own! Yeah Anna!
