Instant Expert: Mysteries of the Mind

You’re in possession of one of the most complex and incredible objects in the known universe: the human brain. It isn’t much to look at – a wrinkled pink blob with the texture of soft tofu, yet it’s what has enabled our species to build civilisations, create great art and fly to the moon.

How does a 1.4 kilogram tangle of nerve cells allow you to sense, understand and change the world? How does it support thought, memory and consciousness? What is intelligence and how does it change throughout life? What are the profound connections between the human brain and body? And what happens when things go wrong? Join six experts working at the forefront of neuroscience and psychiatry to answer these questions and more. Discover why this is the most exciting time in the history of brain science.

Anyone interested in neuroscience, whatever your age or background. Whether you're a scientist, a student or simply a fascinated human being, Instant Expert: Mysteries of the Mind offers the chance to learn directly from the experts at our one-day masterclass
