    A Penny for Your Thoughts: A Workshop on Social Cognition - 1 Geoff Bird (Oxford)

    Organised by Simone Shamay-Tsoory and Uri Hertz, A Penny for Your Thoughts is a workshop on social cognition, exploring how culture and values, friends and family, define who we are, and help us to make sense of the social environment. The event brings together scientists of the mind with varied approaches to the study of interactions, ranging from developmental psychology and cognitive neuroscience, to neurobiology and clinical psychology, with the goal to spark discussion and future collaborations. Sponsored by the British Council’s UK-Israel SYNERGY Programme, the event is organized by The Human Mind Project at the University of London.

    The Neural Basis of Real-World Social Interaction

    Dr Suzanne Dikker
    (Utrecht University, Dept. of Language and Communication; New York University, Dept. of Psychology)

    Most of us interact with other people on a daily basis. Yet, we know very little about how the brain supports dynamic social interactions. In this talk, Suzanne Dikker will discuss a series of projects in which she collaborated with scientists, artists, and educators to investigate the brain basis of real-world face-to-face communication. Dr Dikker will present a number of multidisciplinary projects and discuss promising new avenues for investigating social interactions outside of the laboratory.

    Creativity and the Mind

    Simon Colton
    (Goldsmiths and Falmouth)

    Creativity means innovation and positive change, the inventing of new worlds out of sparks of genius. A creative mind is a mind that generates ideas and solutions likely to make a breakthrough at the societal level. Creative activity evokes chaos and order, allowing us to establish new paths and patterns. What is the creative mind? Is creativity a feature of our attitude towards things, attentive, and open? How does the psychical, social and cultural environment enable creative activity, and how can the environment be structured to enhance it? Is creative agency, and intelligence, a prerogative of the individual?

    Get inspired by leading experts at this one day Being Human festival event with The Human Mind Project and Guerilla Science. Hear from creative practitioners and scholars and flex your own creative muscles through a series of creative challenges and discussions that aim to turn new ideas in to reality.
