The Amazing Brain Symposium


As part of the festivities around the 350th anniversary of Lund University, Lu today hosted the Amazing Brain Symposium with a remarkable line-up of prominent neuroscientists talking about everything from myths about the brain, how the brain helps us navigate, language disorders and the brain, music and the brain, and how to connect brains to machines. The Humanities Lab is proud to have been involved in the organisation of this exciting event. Find the programme here. Some of the lectures will be available from the LU Youtube channel. See Sir Colin Blakemore talk about some brain myths here.
