What you’ll do

Our brains are constantly active, even when we are resting. Hear from cognitive neuroscientist Avital Hahamy who explores the brain at rest, including in people with schizophrenia or autism, and in blind people experiencing visual hallucinations, to better understand neural activity in everyday life.

Please note that this event is taking place in the Reading Room, so food and drink will need to be enjoyed elsewhere before or after the event.
