What's the talk about?
Richard Wiseman is on a mission to put the world to sleep. For the past year he has explored the new science of sleep and dreaming, conducted experiments into sleep-learning, and assembled the world's largest archive of dream reports. He uncovers the power of the sleeping mind, revealing how to get the perfect night's sleep, decode your dreams and improve your life without moving a muscle. This event will involve live EEG projection, a demonstration of mass suggestion, and a free pair of yellow glasses.
Richard Wiseman is Britain’s only Professor of the Public Understanding of Psychology at the University of Hertfordshire, where he researches a diverse range of topics including luck, self-help, illusion and persuasion. His best-selling books include The Luck Factor, Quirkology and 59 Seconds, and his psychology-based YouTube videos have received over 45 million views. His working life began as a professional magician and he is a member of The Inner Magic Circle. He has been a creative consultant on TV for Derren Brown, MythBusters and The Mentalist.
