Talks :: Rita Carter :: Science writer, lecturer and broadcaster :: Oxfordshire
Since writing â Mapping the Mindâ in 1998 I have talked about brain function, consciousness and the physical basis of behaviour to a wide range of groups at seminars, conferences, and workshops in the UK and abroad (see below). I can deliver a formal lecture with appropriate audio-visual aids, handouts and references, or an informal talk which encourages audience participation. Or anything in between. Whatever the style, I try to include the very latest relevant research findings. The Making of Happiness.
