Where did our brain's go?

18 October 2010

STS's long running "Brain Drain" project receives some much deserved publicity tonight. The project forms a key part of the storyline on BBC Radio 3's 'Night Waves' programme, which airs 18 October 2010 at 21:15. 

Listen for STS's Dr Jane Gregory. She features in an extensive interview about the research and about the general process of draining brains in British history.

'Night Waves' is Radio 3's flagship arts and ideas programme.
