Hello

You’ve reached the website dedicated to the work of neuroscientist, author, blogger, occasional comedian and all-round ‘science guy’ Dr Dean Burnett.

Dean is the author of the the popular Guardian Science blog ‘Brain Flapping’, the bestselling book The Idiot Brain, and is currently promoting his eagerly-awaited follow up The Happy Brain, all about why the things that make us happy have this effect on the brain, and how it all works scientifically.

You can read more about Dean, his background and general life, here. To find out more about his books, you can go here.

Dean is currently doing a book tour for The Happy Brain. To see if he appears near you, please check his schedule page, updated regularly.

If Dean isn’t scheduled to appear near you but you would like Dean to come and appear or speak at your event or establishment, please contact Sophie Portas, his publicist at Faber, if it’s to do with one of his books, or Chris Wellbelove, his agent at Aitken Alexander, for any other engagements. You can also contact Dean directly via the contact page of this website.

Dean’s musings can be found here, on his own personal blog page.

Other work by Dean, his guest articles and contributions, can be found here.
