Reading Skeptics - Faulty Memories

Reading Skeptics meet monthly downstairs in Bar Copa, Kings Road for diverse topics of discussion given by a guest speaker. There's usually a big crowd in a small space, so come early and look out for me.

Faulty Memories

Sophie Scott is a Wellcome Trust Senior Fellow and Chair in Cognitive Neuroscience at UCL. Her research is on the neural basis of human communication has a particular emphasis on how our brains decode the range of information in the voices we hear, and how that can be affected by hearing loss or stroke.

Sophie's talk will be on the way our memories let us down and why we probably shouldn't feel as sure of them as we do.
