Is there a connection between the heart and the brain?

Which is the source of emotions? For example, when we’re in love or when we feel our heart break out of sadness, which organ handles this?

Are all emotions located in the brain or in the heart?

Clinical neuropsychologist Kalliopi Megari from CITY College, University of York Europe Campus provides intriguing insights into the dynamic relationship and strong connection between the heart and the brain, showing how lifestyle interventions can help fight cardiovascular and neurological diseases.

This event will take place live on Zoom Webinar. You will receive a link to join a couple of days before the event and a reminder an hour before. During the event, you can ask questions via a Q&A function, but audience cameras and microphones will remain muted throughout.
