Cafe Scientifique this month will be led by Dr Sarah Bate (Senior Lecturer in Psychology) who will give a talk on ‘Face blindness: When everyone is a stranger’. Sarah’s research explores disorders of face recognition particularly prosopagnosia (‘faceblindness’). Faceblindness is a relatively unknown condition that affects one in fifty people. Come along to find out what causes this fascinating condition and what it’s like to live in a world surrounded by strangers. This has been a popular topic in the media in recent months with articles in The Independent and The Daily Mail. You can find out more about her research here.
Door’s open at Cafe Boscanova at 6.30pm this evening, with the talk starting at 7.30pm. As ever, Cafe Boscanova will be serving drinks and light snacks.
