Where the Truth Lies

Fran Scott goes back to her Neuroscience roots as she seeks to explain the concept of ‘being right’. In a world of social media driven echo chambers it is easy to see our truth as the one true right answer.

But how do humans establish the ‘truth’ and what does this mean for wider society? Fran will utilise her skills as a science demonstration designer to perform live experiments with the audience showing how our perception of reality can be manipulated in real-time. By understanding the concepts by which truth is established, we’ll see how right can become wrong, and how truth can indeed be a lie.
