What we think is what we see: Biases in perception

Dr Máté Gyurkovics (Postdoctoral Researcher, University of Glasgow)
The world around us is complex, and we don't have the capacity to take it all in. That’s why our perception sometimes takes short-cuts, and uses previous knowledge and experiences to fill in the gaps for us. In this talk, we'll explore how our brains shape what we see, ranging from how our brains’ rhythms affect what we notice, all the way to how our complex thoughts and expectations shape our perception of reality

Improving Sleep After Stroke

Declan M. McLaren (PhD Student, University of Glasgow)
Research often focuses on how to prevent stroke, and how to save someone's life when they have one. However, less is focused on how can we make sure that life saved is a life worth living. We spend a third of our lives sleeping, but often overlook the importance it plays in regulating our mind and body. Over half of all stroke survivors will meet criteria for a sleep disorder, but why is this? What is it like to live with insomnia after a stroke? How do we identify those who need help? And how do we go about helping them?

Teens & Screens: Mythbusting common media messages

Dr Holly Scott (Lecturer, University of Glasgow)
Are all teenagers "addicted" to their phones? Should they be wearing blue light blocking glasses to protect their sleep? Let's take a look at some of the common messages about teens and screens that we see so often in the media, and dive into the science that supports or questions these!
