Join Professor Anil Seth, Professor of Cognitive and Computational Neuroscience at the University of Sussex for an insight into the state-of-the-art research in the new science of consciousness at The Royal Institution this coming May. Distinguishing between conscious level, conscious content and conscious self, he will describe how new experiments are shedding light on the underlying neural mechanisms in normal life as well as in neurological and psychiatric conditions.
Part of the Public Discourse events series, the prestigious Royal Institution talks not only introduce attendees to the latest in research across the spectrum of science, there is also a certain level of tradition undertaken…

No escaping then Anil!
Tickets are now available for the event on 27th May through The Royal Institution website – priced at £18 (£15 for concessions and members). Click here for more details.
