Hear clinical psychologist and cognitive neuroscientist Professor Ian Robertson speak on his decades of research into the brain's response to pressure.

The difference between too much pressure and too little can result in either debilitating stress or enduring demotivation in extreme situations. However, the right level of challenge and stress can help people to flourish and achieve more than they ever thought possible.

Ian's new book The Stress Test is a revelatory study of how and why we react to pressure in the way we do, with real practical benefit to how we live.

Ian Robertson is an international expert on neuropsychology. Currently Professor of Psychology at Trinity College Dublin, and formerly Fellow of Hughes Hall, Cambridge
