Visit the Wonder: Art and Science on the Brain

Mon, 1pm-1.45pm.

London is a famously labyrinthine maze of ancient streets, which makes it perfect for the research of Hugo Spiers, a cognitive neuroscientist at UCL. He sends his experimental subjects out into the streets of Soho and works with London cabbies, in order to study the way the brain constructs representations of the world and uses them to navigate, imagine the future and remember the past.
