Neurodome: Exploring Neuroscience, Mental Health, Drugs and Perception with Prof. Judith Pratt

In this, the last in our series of Question of Perception Lectures, we will be hosting Professor Judith Pratt, Professor of Neuroscience at the University of Strathclyde Institute of Pharmacy and Biomedical Science. She will lead you on a spectacular tour inside the brain using planetarium software Neurodome to explore its inner workings. Professor Pratt will talk about how the brain is changed in mental health conditions such as schizophrenia and consider how this can influence perception of time, thinking, behaviour and mood. She will also consider how mind-altering drugs can alter perception of the world around us.

This lecture takes place in the Planetarium in Glasgow Science Centre, and includes access to the new A Question of Perception exhibition on Floor 1.
