Speaker information

Beatrice da Vela, UCL Greek and Latin Studies
Michael Banissy, UCL Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience

Each Friday, two brilliant UCL researchers talk about their subjects.

This week, Beatrice da Vela shows us how philologists painstakingly construct new Latin texts from multiple previous editions. Neuroscientist Michael Banissy explores the remarkable phenomenon of mirror-touch synaesthesia, where a person experiences sensation simply by seeing another person being touched.
