The Psychology Section organised the following event for the 2018 British Science Festival:

The deceptive brain

The main purpose of the brain is to enable action. This simple idea is so fundamental that it shapes our conscious experience without us being aware. Steve Tipper demonstrated how these processes influence our behaviour and fool us into seeing far less than we realise. 

President 2018: Professor Steve Tipper, University of York
President 2017: Professor Anil Seth, University of Sussex
President 2016: Professor Sophie Scott, University College London
President 2015: Professor Bruce Hood, University of Bristol

Recorder: Dr. Ellen Poliakoff, University of Manchester
