The Science of Sin

Venue: Waterstones Bookshop, Broad Street, Oxford, OX1 3AF

Dr. Jack Lewis combines the latest neuroscience research and the seven deadly sins to look at the science behind why we are constantly tempted to do the things we know aren’t good for us. Jack suggests strategies to help us better manage our impulses in order to improve our health, our happiness and our productivity – helping us to say ‘no!’ more often, especially when it really counts.

Jack Lewis is a neurobiologist and television presenter. He earned a PhD in neuroscience from University College London, continuing his research using functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging to investigate how human brains integrate sound and vision as a post-doc at the Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics. For the past 10 years he has focused on bringing the latest neuroscience research to the attention of the widest possible audience. He has co-authored two popular science books, Sort Your Brain Out and The Mice Who Sing for Sex.

Suitable for age 16+
