  1. The geology beneath British landscapes

    Weekend
    Course Date: Sun 28 Jul 2019
    Location on this date: KS - Keeley Street
    Britain encompasses a fascinating variety of beautiful landscapes, from the lakes and hills of the north-west to the flatlands of East Anglia. This course gives you a practical introduction to the unique geology beneath these areas, covering main rock types and geological periods.

  2. Science guest lecture : Professor Matthew Longo: the body in the brain - the psychology and neuroscience of body perception

    Evening
    Course Date: Fri 18 Oct 2019
    Location on this date: KS - Keeley Street
    Though our own body is perhaps the most familiar of all objects in the world, recent findings have revealed that in many cases the brain appears to maintain remarkably impoverished and distorted body representations.Professor Longo's lecture will explore the mental representation of our body and how this shapes perception.



    Matthew Longo is Professor of Cognitive Neuroscience in the Department of Psychological Sciences at Birkbeck, University of London where he directs the Body Representation Laboratory. He is a Fellow of the Association for Psychological Science.

    Introduction to geology

    Weekend
    Course Date: Sun 17 Nov 2019
    Location on this date: KS - Keeley Street
    Geology, the study of solid Earth, rocks and the processes by which they change, is a vast subject covering billions of years of history and offering insights into areas such as past climates and the history of life. Discover more about the underlying principles of this important science such as plate tectonics, how rocks are made and the evolution of life. Charles Clarke (MSc in Palaeoanthropology and Palaeolithic Archaeology from University College London) has a special interest in hominin evolutionary research and is also committed to introducing geology to a wider audience.
    Full fee: £59.00
    Senior fee: £47.00
    Concession: £30.00

  4. Science guest lecture: Where physics meets biology: an introduction to current research on the application of biophysics to embryology

    New Evening
    Course Date: Thu 30 Jan 2020
    Location on this date: KS - Keeley Street
    It is an ongoing mystery how the complexity of an adult organism arises from a single fertilised egg cell. This problem has been studied extensively by biologists for centuries, and is now an active area of research for physicists as well. The field of biophysics aims to use the mathematical and computational tools of physics to understand how complex living creatures organise themselves. The key idea is that even something as complicated as a whole organism must still obey the laws of physics . In this talk, Max Kerr Winter will discuss various ways in which physics and biology come together. He will focus on his work studying how forces are distributed and organised in the early mouse embryo, in order for the embryo to grow into the correct shape. What insights can this research give us into the development of human embryos?



    Max Kerr Winter is a theoretical biophysicist. He researches at the Francis Crick Institute, London, in collaboration with experimental biologists at the University of Cambridge.
