Sophie Scott

What's the talk about?

NOTE: This talk will start at 7 pm (prompt!). 

Professor Sophie Scott is the Welcome Trust Senior Fellow at the Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience, University College London researching the neuroscience of voices, speech and laughter.  Oh, and she's an occasional standup too!

In this talk Sophie will look at some of the problems with the Brain Sex theory of brain organisation, and also address some of the conceptual issues people run into when they try to develop brain based theories of sexuality.

You can listen Sophie talking to Jim Al-Khalili on R4's The Life Scientific about her research here:

Bonus Extra talk from 9 pm to 9.30 pm: "PubhD Sampler".

A previous PubhD speaker will tell us about their research for 10 minutes followed by a 20 minute Q&A. The speaker is Mark Iliffe who is researching mapping in developing countries and how to create better services using that data.
