Event description

Electricity plays a vital role in our bodies, from neurons in our brain to nerves in our feet. But how does our body create electricity, how was it discovered and what clues can our understanding of electricity give us to help cure disease? Join Phil Ball and an expert panel for an electrifying evening of discussion.
