Cafe Scientifique: Perception and plasticity – how the world remakes your head

Pop along to Cafe Scientifique and enjoy the discussion over a drink. You don't need to be involved in science or technology to join us – just have an interest and open mind.

Neural plasticity forms the basis of ‘learning' – this cafe will explore recent insights into how the brain forms new connections, and how this is dependent on sensory experience – from quirky perceptual phenomena to more profound aspects of personality.

Jan Lauritzen is a lecturer in neurophysiology at Kingston University; his current research focuses on low-level visual processes and their plasticity in adults.

What to expect

A short informal talk to introduce the topic followed by questions, answers and general discussion. The evening is designed to appeal to anyone with an interest in science and technology – and takes place in surroundings where anyone can feel comfortable asking a question.

So, tell your friends, family and anyone else who springs to mind!
