Professor Charles Spence from the Department of Experimental Psychology researches the science behind “multisensory illusions” and “multisensory perception”. In this fascinating talk at the Museum he explores the rapidly developing field of gastrophysics; how soundscapes and music come together with taste to make the whole experience more stimulating, more enjoyable and possibly even more memorable.

Doors open at 18:30.
