Royal Institution Friday Evening Discourse: 26th October 2012

Professor of Comparative Cognition, Nicola Clayton, gave a lecture which covered topics ranging from identity to mental time travel, in collaboration with fine artist Clive Wilkins, at the Royal Institution last Friday as part of the Friday Evening Discourse series. Nicola and Clive have established a unique collaboration in order to explore and better understand the subjective experience of thinking, by comparing and contrasting their methods of enquiry into the world around them, informed by science, the arts and the act of being.

Listen to Nicola and Clive talking to Camila Ruz about the subjects covered in the joint lecture on this Guardian podcast.  The Royal Institution audio archive of the discourse is available here.
