Professor Julie Turner-Cobb spoke at London’s Royal Institution on Wednesday evening, as part of a public lecture and discussion event. The Science of Stress examined what happens when people get stressed, and how this affects our mood, memory and health.
She was joined on the panel by Professor Joe Herbert (Cambridge University) and Professor Shane O’Mara (Trinity College Dublin), hosted by neuroscientist Vincent Walsh (University College London), and the event was attended by an audience of over 300 people.
The focus of Professor Turner-Cobb’s talk was on the interaction between stress and physical health in children, the impact of early life stress on health across the lifespan and addressed the question of whether in some situations stress can be good for you. Talks were followed by a 45-minute panel discussion answering questions from the audience.

The event was filmed and will be available on the Royal Institution YouTube channel shortly.
