Is there a neural basis for religious belief and experience? Does your biology shape your political views?

Join us for an evening of talks which will explore how differences in brain activity and structure may relate to differences in our beliefs.

We will be joined by four fantastic speakers:

-Revd Prof. Alasdair Coles, a neurologist who has done some research on the neurological basis for religious experience.

-Dr Joseph Tennant, a research associate working on the psychology and neurology of religious experience.

-Dr Harvey McMahon FRS , whose research is focussed on the molecular mechanisms of vesicle trafficking. Dr McMahon also has an interest in the role of the brain on free will.

Dr Lee de Wit, a post-doctoral researcher and author of a book exploring the psychology of voting- ‘What’s Your Bias?: The Surprising Science of Why We Vote the Way We Do’

Refreshments will be provided after the discussion.
