Your beautiful biased brain: Psychologist James Soper presents this fast-paced, interactive show that will literally turn your world upside down. We take our brains for granted but they are the most amazing machines in the universe. Brains do incredible things, but they also take short-cuts that mean sometimes what you see, hear and feel is very different to the actual world around you. Learn about the latest in brain imaging and research in a show that will blow your mind.
