The Royal Institution (link Map)
21 Albemarle Street | London | W1S 4BS | United Kingdom

Open to: Academic | Student

Humans are intensely social. We learn from each other and work together. But what are the advantages of working together, and are two heads always better than one when making decisions? Join Chris and Uta Frith for a historic two-person Discourse as they explore the science of collaboration.

Chris Frith is an Emeritus Professor at Wellcome Trust Centre for Neuroimaging, UCL Institute of Neurology and has published widely on social cognition, schizophrenia and other neuroscience topics. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society, the British Academy, and the American Association for the Advancement of Science.

Uta Frith is an Emeritus Professor of Cognitive Development at University College London. She is best known for her research on autism spectrum disorders. Her aim is to discover the underlying cognitive causes of developmental disorders and to link them to behavioural symptoms as well as to brain systems. She recently became president of the British Science Association.
