The Neuroscience of Emotion | Dr Mark Solms

Tue Jun 23, 19:00 - Tue Jun 23, 21:30
The Jagger Lounge


By uproarious popular demand, we are inviting you to once again, journey within the mechanisms of the human brain with Dr Mark Solms. 

The renowned South African psychoanalyst and professor of neuropsychology at the University of Cape Town, will conquer perhaps the most human subject of all; emotion. 

Solms will seek to dissect how our brains navigate the vast and complex landscape of emotional experience. Spectacular insights will be offered on questions around the animal brain’s capacity to experience emotion, the rise of emotional disorders within the modern world, as well as the effect ubiquitous technology use has on our seemingly declining emotional capacity. Our resident neuroscientist will also provide a hypothesis for how new insights might impact the very future of psychiatry, psychotherapy and emotional wellbeing. 

Become a Fruitcake! Join the revolution toward enlightenment and new-age knowledge with just a touch of fruity fun.

Come early to take advantage of The Jagger Lounge's mouth-watering selection of food & drinks.

Doors: 6pm | Talk starts: 7:30pm
