For more cerebral Christmas TV
Psychology will be beamed into millions of homes this December with the announcement that Bruce Hood, Director of the Bristol Cognitive Development Centre, is to present this year's Royal Institution Christmas Lectures on the topic 'Meet your brain'. The RI said Professor Hood 'will explore how our brains work and just what makes us truly human. He will explain how you create your own version of reality, what makes your brain decide what information to trust and what to ignore (without you even knowing!) and why you are programmed to read other people's minds.'
The Royal Institution Christmas Lectures have run since 1825 and been televised since 1966. Hood follows in the footsteps of the eminent psychologists Frederic Bartlett (1948) and Richard Gregory (1967). This year's lectures will be broadcast on BBC4 in late December.
