DCU, the Healthy Living Centre has set up a new clinic called Neurofeedback. It is primarily for those suffering from ADHD and it is run by a neuroscientist, Dr Michael Keane, who specialises in linking brain function to behaviour. It's the only clinic of its kind in Ireland and the results have been very positive so far. Katriona & Derek went along to see what help can be provided.
Well, they say money can buy you anything. It bought Richard Attenborough his dream of Jurassic Park, anyway but if you don't have the billions required to put together your own dinosaur theme park, we might have an alternative for you! How about just buying an original set of dinosaur bones?
A genuine set of fossilised bones, about 150 million years old. They are fully verified, and together make up skeleton of a massive, 17-metre Diplodocus longus, one of the most iconic dinosaurs ever to walk the earth. The bones will go on sale on Wednesday, November 27, as part of a larger "Evolution Sale", in Billingshurst, West Sussex, in England. The curator of the sale is Errol Fuller and spoke to Derek about the sale.
