Psychology departmental lecture: Laughter, prejudice and unfamiliar faces

24/02/2014 (18:15)

To make a booking, please email Nickola.Webb@rhul.ac.uk including your name, your school, the best email address for contacting you, and the approximate number of people in your group.


Dr Victoria Bourne will talk about the importance of being able to recognise faces, and what happens when a brain injury leads some to lose this ability. Dr Marco Cinnirella will discuss the psychology of prejudice, asking why Islamophobia has been one of the fastest growing prejudices in countries like the U.K. And Dr Carolyn McGettigan will talk about laughter – its universality, how we use it, and how our brains respond to it.
