Open to: Academic | Student

The Bartlett's Future Cities next event will explore the Future City through the prism of neuroscience, art and architecture. Our guest speaker Dr. Hugo Spiers will open this doctoral dialogue with his inspiring topic 'The Soho Brain Project: Neuroscience in the City'.

The talk will cover recent research conducted in London’s Soho studying the brain’s inner GPS system. The intersection of neuroscience, art and architecture and the challenges of interdisciplinary research will also be considered.

Hugo Spiers leads the UCL Spatial Cognition Research Group. His team use a combination of neuroimaging, neuropsychology, single cell recording and virtual reality to study spatial cognition in the brain. He is interested in how we use internal representation of the world to navigate the present, recall the past and imagine the future.
