The Daniel Reisel keynotes not only search for the psychological and physical roots of human morality, they also ask the big questions like how we can help the brain re-grow morality and rehabilitate criminal minds.
Reisel has been studying the brains of criminal, and humans and mice, to feed his thirst for cognitive neuroscience and epigenetics, as well as psychology and sociology. As a hospital doctor and as a research fellow in epigenetics at University College London, Reisel completed his PhD in Neuroscience in 2005, in which he studied how to rewire the brain. Since then, his research has focused on gene function.
Resell is training to become an accredited restorative justice facilitator with the UK Restorative Justice Council and has spent a year at Wormwood Scrubs High Security Prison studying amygdala brain activity in the inmates there for research.
