He gave the keynote lecture at our cutting-edge conference which brought together PSYCHOLOGY & NUTRITION, and showed how nutrition, hormones and genomics are powerfully affecting future generations' mental and physical health. The conference title was "Generating Healthy Brains - Nutrients and Hormones in Development:, mental health through coordinated care of life's beginnings" organised by Simon House and held at the Innholder's Hall 17 January 2006.
