He is a former University Lecturer and founder of NUI Galway’s first scientific laboratories for investigating brain functioning. Widely published, and a reviewer for several academic journals, he is also the Neuroscientific Lead on the Mental Health Advisory Panel of A Lust For Life, a multi award- winning mental health charity.

Dr. Keane works as advisor and coach to a wide portfolio of global corporate organisations, provincial and international athletes, pilots, surgeons, musicians and leadership teams. Using Neuroscience education, brain imaging and interactive brain technologies, Michael works with these professionals to foster a deeper understanding of the mechanics, capabilities and potential of the human brain.

He is also the Neuroscience Consultant and a regular contributor to the chart-topping ‘Where is My Mind’ – a podcast about how we can navigate this manic, always-on world we live in, created and hosted by Niall ‘Bressie’ Breslin.

A prominent public speaker on wellbeing, leadership, stress and peak performance in Europe, US and Asia, Michael combines an acclaimed academic track record with humour and an engaging, authentic style to make Neuroscience accessible and compelling to global audiences.

The essence of Michael’s work is anchored in the premise that we have an ‘old brain for a new world’. Whilst our brain has evolved over millions of years into a finely-tuned supercomputer, it is not built to deal with the demands of modern society. For so many, this is now manifesting in prolific overwhelm, stress and anxiety. Bringing deep insight into how brain mechanisms can be exploited to equip people to live, work and relate more effectively, Michael is emerging as a thought leader in how we can use Neuroscience to empower resilience and wellbeing.

He is currently completing a medical degree to deepen his understanding of how both brain and body can be maintained and evolved to flourish in a world moving too fast for too many.

Topics / themes generally involve provide relatable insights in how our brains work, and how we can use this knowledge to enhance our lives.
