Wednesday 5 September, 7.00 – 8.00pm
Broadcaster, neuroscientist and director of Science Gallery at King's College London, Dr Daniel Glaser leads a talk on his research and the relationship between art and science. This event has been programmed to coincide with Peter Fraser’s exhibition Mathematics.
Dr Daniel Glaser initially studied mathematics before training as a neuroscientist. He previously worked at Wellcome Trust where he headed up their engaging science work. He was the world's first scientist in residence at an arts institution at the ICA in 2002 and was the first scientist to judge the Man Booker prize in 2014. He is the presenter of the Guardian Podcast series A Neuroscientist Explains, and has presented a television series for the BBC on how science really works. His scientific research involves the use of fMRI (functional magnetic resonance imaging) to examine how experience, prejudice and expectation alter the way we see the world.
