'Mental Time Travel'
Professor Nicky Clayton
Location: School of Optometry and Vision Sciences, Maindy Road, Cathays, Cardiff, CF24 4LU
Re-living memories and imaging the future scenarios lies at the heart of humanity. The very nature of imagination impedes and disorientates memories and diversifies reality. We make use of this to define multiple realities, coexisting side by side. But are we unique among the animal kingdom in travelling mentally in time?
As ever, this event is free, but registration is required. If you wish to attend, please register at:
and remember to print your tickets and bring them to the event.
This event is kindly sponsored by the Raymond and Beverly Sackler Distinguished Lecture in Neuroscience in Honour of Sir Keith Peters.
Upcoming NMHRI supported Event:
