Mary Sharpe will be at Lucy Cavendish College at the University of Cambridge to speak about ‘Internet Pornography and the Adolescent Brain’ on Thursday 7th June 2018 at 6.00 p.m.  Entry is free and open to everyone. It can be booked here.

Mary, a Scottish Advocate (lawyer), has a strong affection for and affiliation to Lucy Cavendish College as a Lucy Cavendish Associate. Between 2003 and 2011 she ran workshops in the college as varied as “Sustaining Peak Performance” for graduate students and multi-disciplinary advanced research workshops for the NATO Science for Peace and Security Programme to understand better the mindset of suicide bombers.

Currently Mary heads The Reward Foundation – Love, Sex and the Internet, an educational charity dedicated to making the key scientific research about love relationships and neuroplasticity available to a lay audience. With advances in neuroscience in the past decade, we are gaining increasing insight into how internet pornography impacts on the adolescent brain in terms of health, attainment, relationships and criminality.
