Brain training, chimp chat and the dark side of the Universe…

This September, the British Science Festival will be regaling Surrey with the latest exciting and thought-provoking science. Among the anticipated highlights are the British Science Association Award Lectures, which will be presented at the University of Surrey, Guildford.The Award Lectures are coveted prizes for talented communicators with an interesting story to tell about their research.

The Association has identified five early stage scientists and engineers who have demonstrated exceptional skills in communicating to non-specialist audiences to give these prestigious lectures.

The winners will present diverse subject matter - from a look at how working memory, the brain’s ‘post-it note’, is at the centre of a new scientific revolution in understanding how the brain works, to insights into dark matter. The lunchtime lectures are open to all.
