Are our Brains Broken?
Cognitive Bias and the Neurodiverse Spectrum

TALK | 3

PM | FREE


A lecture and interactive demonstration by Dr Edward Bracey, demonstrating that the senses we trust unthinkingly every day can be tricked and manipulated. In using the senses to create a model of the environment, the brain has to make shortcuts and simplifications leading to cognitive biases. Experience how our brains simplify reality, putting us all on a spectrum of neurodiversity.
