28th Catalyst Club
The 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, on the 14th and tonight.
Rainy Brain, Sunny Brain – How full is that glass? And does it matter? Elaine Fox explores the connection between optimism and happiness, and shows the new techniques for training happiness into the brain.
The Secret Logic of Sexual Fantasy Zoltan Dienes explores what function sexual fantasy may serve, and why they are so different for different people.
The Little Death Vanessa Austin Locke explores the brain chemistry, psychology and socio-economic backgrounds that colour extreme sexual experience.
Plato said likes attract, so come along and find out if he was right. In a Catalyst first we’ll be conducting an experiment on the night in conjunction with a new dating project, to help people meet each other – introduced by your congenial host. Make sure your phone is turned on!
