Speaker information

Professor Sophie Scott, Wellcome Trust Senior Fellow, UCL, Professor Scott is an expert on the human brain, and she investigate the ways that our brains responds to sound, for example, how the left and right sides of the brain make different kinds of contributions.
Dr Jonathan Holmes, UCL, Dr Holmes is an expert on Shakespeare and the history of the theatre, and he will describe how sound has been used in theatre, from Shakespeare's time onwards.

Professor Sophie Scott and Dr Jonathan Holmes present a unique collaboration between neuroscience and drama, to tell the story of hearing. From the ways that sounds are made, to the ways that the brain processes sound, through to the use of sound in the theatre, we will outline how our auditory worlds shape our experience, and what can happen when that goes wrong.
