Sarah Holper

Dr. Sarah Holper is a neurology doctor and passionate communicator, who has published research on the impenetrability of the writing of doctors and academics and how poor communication can jeopardize patient care. Dr. Holper served as medical adviser for David Astle's popular science book 'Rewording the Brain' and she devised a world-first study identifying the brain region responsible for the 'aha!' moment when cracking a crossword clue. Over the past decade Dr. Holper has worked in more than a dozen hospitals in rural towns and city centers. She has cared for thousands of patients, given thousands of explanations and answered thousands of questions. Patients have commended her ability to 'explain things in plain English', though her puns have received variable reviews.
