Richard Raynor’s world was turned upside down at the age of 31, when a severe stroke led to a loss of speech, language and memory. In this vibrant, colourful and coming-to-terms talk, Richard describes the day of his stroke, his recovery, intensive rehabilitation, and his involvement in world leading neuropsychology research. His positive outlook and message on living life is awe-inspiring, and led him to be awarded as Stroke Association Life after Stroke Award. Associate Professor of Psychology, Nele Demeyere, explains how cognitive neuropsychology studies these invisible consequences of brain injuries and how people like Richard provide essential windows into understanding how our brains work.
IF Oxford is operating a Pay What You Decide (PWYD) ticketing system. This works by enabling you to pre-book events without paying for a ticket beforehand. Afterwards, you have the opportunity to pay what you decide you want to, or can afford. If you prefer, you can make a donation to IF Oxford when you book. All funds raised go towards next year’s Festival.
