Super Senses: The Science of Your 32 Senses and How to Use Them 

Starts at: Sunday 17 October 4:15 PM
Finishes at: Sunday 17 October 5:15 PM

Did you know recent research has shown that we have at least thirty-two senses? Senses that could allow us to be happier, healthier and even wealthier?

No, this is not a session with a magician: Emma Young is an award-winning science writer and a former editor on New Scientist. Acquired over a decade of research, Emma’s insights may very well allow you to become a prima ballerina or a whirling dervish (without falling over). Prepare to leave Emma’s talk confident that your cat really does make you happy; knowing how to use your gut to make better decisions; and improving your ability to find the car park. Can you bear to miss out?

Super Senses is an exhilarating sensory journey that reveals the science behind our most underestimated abilities. While researching this book Emma learnt how to echolocate like a bat, have an out of body experience, and trick strangers into liking her. What will you learn?

“This book changed the way I sense the world. I’d say eye-opening but that’s too limiting: this is sense-opening
