Schools Talks We offer a range of talks for schools on a variety of topics. The talks are designed to be cross-curricular, thought-provoking and wide-ranging. We can tailor the presentation for the appropriate year group and time available, but students will benefit from a discussion session following the talks.

Topics offered are:

    The Moral Brain – how we make decisions with a moral component
    Movements in Art and the Modularity of Vision – how artists have exploited the way the brain processes visual information
    What it Takes to Be Human – what is it that makes a human being?
    The Changing Brain – how do our brains change with life events and how can we shape our own individuality Diversity and Disorder – with special reference to the human genome project, where does the boundary lie between human diversity and disorder. Who makes that decision?

    The Plague: Methods of a Mass Murderer - The biochemical secrets of the worlds most successful pathogen

    Neurodegeneration: The Silent Killer – what causes neurodegeneration? What possible therapies are being explored?
And talks on this year’s topics:
