Professor Jan Wiener will be giving a talk entitled Navigation, Ageing and Dementia: minimising spatial disorientation in the built environment at the Bournemouth Natural Science Society (BNSS), as part of their Science Week series of events.
Prof Wiener is Head of the Wayfinding Laboratory at Bournemouth University, and co-head of the Ageing and Dementia Research Centre (ADRC).
The talk will cover the perception and information processes involved in human navigation behaviour, how our environment and our age impact on this process and the different experiments used to investigate it.
The talk will be on Tuesday 19 March at 7.30pm at the Bournemouth Natural Science Society.
Also part of Science Week at BNSS will be talks on the Mysteries of Bird Migration by Dominic Couzens, and Plankton Journeys by Dr Anna Hickman from Southampton University.
