This event forms part of a series curated by Dallas Campbell and will feature a special performance from Lorraine Bowen.
We'll peer into the workings of our brains to try and understand the roots of fear and anxiety. From fear as an evolutionary survival tool to unravelling the nature of our modern day phobias. Can a better understanding of neuroscience, brain chemistry, and psychology help explain what causes irrational fears? Can we get better at active risk assessment in an increasing complex world? And can we re-write our brains and erase fear memory for good? What can science tell us about human happiness and why positive thinking is NOT the secret!
Tickets: £10 standard, £7 concessions and £5 Associates. Members go free.
