Psychology Lecture 2013
Beatboxers, psychopaths and the sense of self: Three perspectives on the human mind - Dr Carolyn McGettigan, Professor Amina Memon and Dr Manos Tsakiris Department of Psychology, Royal Holloway, University of London
Three lecturers from the Department of Psychology will each provide a window into a different aspect of the human mind. Professor Amina Memon will talk about psychopathy, asking "Are psychopaths born evil?" Dr Manos Tsakiris will describe research that uses the senses of the body to understand how we become aware of ourselves, asking "How does the brain give us a sense of who we are?" And Dr Carolyn McGettigan will describe her work with the beatboxer Reeps One to investigate how the brain controls expert vocal behaviour. We hope you will be able to join us for this varied and exciting look at the science of the human mind.
Wednesday 6 February 2013- 5:00pm to 7:00pm (with refreshments commencing at 5:00pm)
