14th Catalyst Club
This monthly conversation club always delights, not just because of the three original talks, but also because of its ambiance and of course the living national treasure who MCs it. Join David Bramwell for two science-based sessions, tonight and on the 28th.
“And Now For The Science Bit…” How do adverts work? Alastair Goode takes a look at implicit memory and advertising, how adverts persuade unconsciously and how the study of eye movements reveals how adverts get into our heads.
Ticks, Worms And Flukes Parasites face huge challenges to get into host species. David Hadrill explores their remarkable interactions with other beings, recounting the extraordinary life stories of these tiny organisms.
Super Longevity and Super Happiness Peter Brietbart gives an introduction to Transhumanism, explaining how technology will allow us to radically redesign what it means to be human.
