Mind reading is the ultimate superhero skill - beyond the realms of human possibility. Yet new technology is bringing this futuristic scenario within our grasp.

Functional magnetic resonance imaging allows scientists to see brain areas ‘light up’ as we think. Movements, emotions, memories and intentions have all been visualised, enabling scientists to see inside a person’s mind, and possibly predict the future. Yet how much is science, and how much is fiction?

In this exciting event, we explore the inner workings of the brain, delving into the origins of memories and learning more about our identity as human beings. Featuring live analysis of a brain scan, ‘Mind Reading?’ is a first for New Zealand. Top scientists Associate Professor Brett Cowan and Dr Donna Rose Addis from The University of Auckland will showcase the incredible technology of MRI and provide a behind the scenes glimpse of cutting-edge brain research.

Held in the Events Centre.
