Heroes of Neurons: Speed Science



On arrival, visitors both literally and metaphorically leave their preconceptions behind in order to enter the event. The public becomes the inquiring body, participating in the delivery of an unprecedented swing Q&A.

Each scientist, after giving a brief introduction to their work, will be sitting in one of four spaces consisting of a circle of chairs where the public will be seated, a clock and two chairs in the middle, one for the scientist and one for the participant. Every 3 minutes the participants’ seat will be taken by another visitor for 3 minutes of questions.

Scientists and their topic of interest

Dr Andrea Baronchelli - Understanding and modelling the emerging global properties of social and cognitive systems
Dr Irina Basieva - Quantum Probability Theory to describe uncertainty in decision making and explain cognitive "paradoxes"
Dr Francesco Rigoli - Study of multiple motivational cognitive systems that interact to determine decision making and behaviour
Dr Julia F. Christensen - Exploring the neural underpinnings of emotional expertise

The event is followed by drinks and nibbles!
