Continuing our celebration of the Psychology department's 10 year anniversary, this inaugural Mind and Brain lecture with Professor Eleanor Maguire (UCL) will showcase the innovation, creativity, and impact of Psychology as a discipline.

Professor Maguire is a Wellcome Trust Principal Resesarch Fellow, Professor of Cognitive Neuroscience at the Wellcome Trust Centre for Neuroimaging at UCL, a Fellow of the Royal Society, and a Fellow of the British Academy. She has also received the Royal Society's Rosalind Franklin Award in recognition of her outstanding contribution to science.

Professor Maguire's talk, "How are memories represented in the human brain?", will highlight her influential neuropsychological and neuroimaging research which offers a fresh perspective on the key processes underpinning autobiographical memory, and uncovers how specific brain regions interact to produce the seamless re-experiencing of past events.

Following the talk, there will be a wine reception in the Fogg foyer for the speaker and attendees.

The event is free and all are welcome to attend!

As seating and catering is limited, registration is required.
