Matter Over Mind?

Think you're in control of your own thoughts, emotions and actions? You may just want to think again. As we continue to unlock the secrets of the subtle interactions between the brain and the body we are discovering that we may not be the conscious decision makers we think we are.

Can your posture affect the way you think? Might the next generation of books read your mind, changing the way they are written to suit your mood? Experiment with Thomas Cochrane’s Mood Organ – a synthesiser which ‘plays’ your emotions.

At this Encounter we explore how symmetry surrounds and attracts us: from its presence in art, to the structure of body and brain. Can it influence our lives?

John Starr is a Professor of Ageing at the University of Edinburgh interested in body and brain symmetry during development and how this may impact on later health.

Gavin Evans is recognised for his uncompromising take on photography. His images are brutally direct, visceral in their beauty and underpinned by humour.
