How the human brain makes a map of space.

Why does it work better in some people than in others? When people think about where they want to go, they call to mind a "mental map". Where is this map in the brain and how is it made?

In her talk the speaker will explain some of the research which has taken place in recent years and shed light on these questions, and also reveal the surprising discovery that our map and memory are closely intertwined.

There is no charge for attendance and members' guests will be welcome. Please note the timing is 1830 for signing in etc for the start at 1900. Please carry photo ID.
