  1. 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
    Although 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.

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

    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.
