Inaugural lecture: Professor Robert McIntosh

Rob McIntosh

Professor Robert McIntosh, Personal Chair of Experimental Neuropsychology, will deliver his Inaugural Lecture.

Title: Reflections in Neuropsychology

Abstract: The human brain is grossly symmetrical, with its two hemispheres mirror reflections of one another. But human behaviour and cognition, and the underlying brain organisation, are highly asymmetrical. My research as an experimental neuropsychologist seeks to understand aspects of behaviour and cognition, often by studying the consequences of brain damage or degeneration. Several strands of my work share themes of symmetry, asymmetry, and reflection. I will be surveying some of this research, and reflecting on how lucky I am to be giving this inaugural lecture.

The event is open to the public and all colleagues, friends and students are welcome to attend.
