Psychology researchers at Edinburgh are looking forward to being involved in this year's Science Festival (1st – 16th April) - so don't miss out on these fantastic events!
A fun discussion exploring some of the history of psychology, and debating who could own the title of psychology’s greatest hero. Professor Caroline Watt, Dr Thomas Bak, and Dr Stuart Ritchie, will each present their case and you’ll get to probe them with questions to help determine the answer. This event is not to be missed.
Both of these events will be led by Professor Ian Deary and are not to be missed if you’re interested in Intelligence and Individual differences. Ian Deary has made a huge mark on the studies of intelligence in Psychology, so what better way to find out more about the longest study of human cognition that has ever taken place.
Try out a range of child-friendly activities that let you explore what’s going on inside your mind. The science of thought is an incredibly complex area, and this is set to be a fun, accessible entry into discovering what it’s all about.
For those of you with an interest in the psychology of development, and of language, this is a great event. Bring along your child scientists to explore language development and how we learn to understand it all.
