The Little Book of Big Stuff about the Brain

[non fiction]
As an Irishman everything is ultimately a story. This book is the story of the brain starting in the earliest dawning of life and working through to the brain you have in your head, the most advanced piece of natural creation that has ever existed. How do you feel, how do you learn, how do you control your behaviour? This book is aimed at everyone at any age who wants to understand themselves just that little bit more, especially if they are interetsed in learning either about themselves, or as a teacher, trainer, coach trying to lead others into the wonder of new knowledge.

Get off the sofa (you lazy bastard)

Get off the sofa
[non fiction]
You are overweight, you are under exercised (sic), you smoke, you drink too much. Actually that is your choice. This book is not about criticising you. It is written to explain to you three things about each of your organ systems: what they do when they are healthy; what you can do to look after them; and what happens when you dont. After that it is your choice. The problem you will have is that you have read this book. That means you will understand the choices you are making.

Welcome To My Site

Andrew Curran

I am a paediatric neurologist working in a hospital in the UK. I specialise in all aspects of paediatric neurology but especially in autistic spectrum disorder, long term severe neurodisability, brain injury and migraine. I also do medicolegal work.

This website is not for any of those things (though for medicolegal work you can contact me from this if you wish).

This website is for all the other things I do - my creative output. There's my music through writing to my work as a presenter within education and also on television and radio.

It's somewhere where I can share essays that I write on all manner of things from autism and cerebral palsy to my perceptions about the world, its religions and politics.

There are also lots of pictures.

Welcome - and enjoy.
