Neurologist and neuroscientist Vilayanur S. Ramachandran is giving a talk at the Royal Society in London tonight. Entitled Nature and nurture in brain function: clues from synesthesia and phantom limbs, the talk begins at 6.30pm GMT.
The lecture is free and does not require a ticket or advance booking, so if you’re in London it’s well worth attending. If you can’t make it, the talk will be webcast live. I’ll be there, as Ramachandran has been somewhat of an inspiration to me.
