Episode 61 Shownotes 


Today’s guest on is an internationally recognised professor of cognitive neuroscience,  Dr Mark Williams.

Mark has over 25 years experience conducting behavioral and brain imaging research focusing on our social skills. He has taught the fundamentals of neuroscience to a wide range of undergraduate and postgraduate students, as well as publishing more than 70 scientific articles.

Mark has been awarded numerous high profile fellowships and grants, and worked both at MIT in the USA and at universities in Australia.

He now focuses on making the many recent discoveries in cognitive neuroscience more accessible to the general public. His academic background allows him to communicate with authority on science and his passion for education makes him accessible to a wide audience.

Not a typical ‘academic’, Mark comes from a disjointed family background. He hated school and experienced first-hand the challenges of getting ahead in a small town in Victoria,  Australia.  To describe these years as ‘colourful’ is an understatement.

Aged 25, something changed. Mark returned to learning, completed his High School education and began what became a rapid rise to academic achievement, including being awarded both the CJ Martin and the Queen Elisabeth II Fellowships. He became fascinated with how we interact, learn and think. Mark went on to study brain plasticity, attention disorders, autism, prosopagnosia (face blindness), dementia and eating disorders. He has been at the cutting edge of developing computational brain imaging analysis and the adoption of new technologies like virtual reality in research.

He now runs programs for schools and businesses on the neuroscience of learning, the neuroscience of emotions and the impact of modern technologies (like smartphones) on our brains.

The 3 Big Takeaways  


1. Our IQ is not static and can change throughout our lives. The notion of use it or lose it very much applies to our brain     

2. For the first time in history our IQ is going down. In the course of the past 10 years universities have been forced to make courses easier   

3. The younger a child is given a smartphone the more likely they are to be diagnosed with ADHD as they get older
