Crave has been musing about how to make Morningside a better place to live. Lifting the lid on the people of Morningside helps the community get to know the diversity and activities of the people of the ‘hood’. We are delighted to lift the lid on Mapura Studios who will present Being Brainy.


PROFESSOR CONNOR – BEING BRAINY childhood development.

Bronwen Connor is a Professor in Pharmacology and head of the Neural Reprogramming and Repair Lab at the University of Auckland’s Centre for Brain Research. Bronwen has worked on several strategies for the treatment of multiple neurological disorders.
