December 8, 20:00, the "Books" Pavilion will host a lecture "How does the brain deceive us? Errors of perception and cognitive distortions." The event will be conducted by the scientific journalist Asya Kazantseva.
Visitors to the lecture will learn many entertaining facts about the cognitive features of the brain. Why do people who are schizophrenic do not perceive certain optical illusions? Will you notice if the person with whom you started a conversation gets replaced? Why is the brain supposed to be well developed to know the traffic light signals? And you will also learn that our perception of reality strongly depends on expectations and not what we actually see.
Asya Kazantseva is a well-known scientific journalist, laureate of the "Enlightenment" award, and author of bestsellers about human irrational behavior. She is a graduate of the Department of Higher Nervous Activity of the Biology Department of the St. Petersburg State University and is currently working on her thesis. Asya Kazantseva regularly speaks with her lectures not only in Russia, but all over the world.
The lecture will take place in pavilion No.516 "Books". Admission is free.
