Our sense of reward motivates us and is essential for survival, so when the system malfunctions, it can lead to big problems. Hear Ray Dolan, Wolfram Schultz and Peter Dayan, winners of this year’s Brain Prize, discuss their ground-breaking work on how the brain recognises and processes reward with Claudia Hammond, the host of BBC's 'All in the mind'.
Claudia Hammond is an award-winning broadcaster, writer and lecturer. She regularly presents the All in the Mind and Mind Changers series on BBC Radio 4.
Their multidisciplinary analysis of brain mechanisms that link learning to reward has far-reaching implications for the understanding of human behaviour. This include disorders of decision-making in conditions such as gambling, drug addiction, compulsive behaviour and schizophrenia.
The doors will open at approximately 6.30pm, with a prompt start at 7.00pm. There will be time for questions after the talk.
Latecomers will be admitted to the gallery.
