Invitation to a Memory Film Festival
Do you want to watch good films, that don't compromise on the neuroscience and psychology? Do you want to show your friends and family how psychology and neuroscience influence popular culture, but you don't want to dazzle them with jargon? If so, then bring them along to the Psychology Films Memory Film Festival 2011, running March 15th - April 4th.
We'll be showing five mainstream Hollywood films (Memento, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, The Hangover, Total Recall and, for families, Finding Nemo) with the scientific issues introduced by Cambridge Neuroscience speakers from the University. Find out about medial temporal lobe amnesia, how to suppress troublesome memories, and whether memories could be implanted in the brain in an informal, yet theatrical, setting. Most of the events are free, though registration is highly recommended. See our website (www.psychology-films.webnode.com) for details on dates, times, venues and how to get tickets.
Organised by Dr. Amy Milton, Department of Experimental Psychology, University of Cambridge
