Prof. Shane O’Meara, neuroscientist TCD, will discuss his book ‘In Praise Of Walking’, which invites us to marvel at the benefits walking confers on our bodies and minds.
Incredibly, it is a skill that has its revolutionary origins millions of years ago, under the sea.
The latest research is only now revealing how the brain and nervous system performs the mechanical magic of balancing, navigating a crowded city, or running our inner GPS system.
As our lives become increasingly sedentary, we risk all this.
We must start walking again, whether it’s up a mountain, down to the park, or simply to school and work.
We, and our societies, will be better for it. This is a free event and all are welcome.
Booking is recommended. Tel: 053-9421481.
