Bodily Voices


Senate House, Malet Street, London WC1 |

Open to: Academic | Alumni | Public | Student

Have you ever formed an image of someone you've heard on the radio, and then been surprised when you saw what they actually looked like? Why do we notice other people’s accents, but not our own? How do actors and ventriloquists change their voices and what happens in their brain when they do so? These and other topics will be covered in an evening discussion between neuroscientist Sophie Scott and writer Steven Connor on 24 April 2012 at Senate House in central London. The event is the first in a series of public conversations with leading researchers exploring different aspects of the voice. The talk is curated by poet and writer James Wilkes, who is poet-in-residence at the UCL Institute for Cognitive Neuroscience with support from a Wellcome Trust Arts Award until August 2012. James Wilkes’s publications include Interior Traces, a project which explored past, present and possible future implications of neuroscience for law and medicine.
