The Science and Technology Faculty and the Alumni Team are delighted to invite you to attend the first alumni lecture in this new series, given by Professor Sophie Scott (Life Sciences 1970), Deputy Director, Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience, UCL. Professor Scott will give a lecture on the Neuroscience of Laughter.
Professor Scott studied psychology at the Polytechnic of Central London (as it was then) between 1987-1990, then did a PhD at UCL. She worked in Cambridge at the MRC Applied Psychology Unit from 1993-1998, and then returned to UCL to work at the (then new) Institute for Cognitive Neuroscience. Professor Scott was awarded a Welcome Trust Fellowship in 2001 and has been funded by them since. Her work addresses the neurobiology of human vocal behaviour and vocal communication from sound to speech.
The lecture will be followed by a drinks reception which you are most welcome to attend.
