BSNR Inaugural Christmas Lecture

We were extremely lucky to have Jeremy Wolfe, Professor of Ophthalmology & Radiology, Harvard Medical School and Director, Visual Attention Laboratory, Brigham and Women's Hospital as our inaugural BSNR Christmas Lecturer on the 16th December. He delivered a fascinating talk on his research on the psychology of perception and what causes us to miss things like gorillas in chest CTs! The lecture recording is available above (we apologise for technical difficulties at the start).

Professor Wolfe was awarded the James Bull medal and honorary fellowship of the BSNR by our President, Daniel Birchall. More information on the fascinating research he and his group are involved in is available here.
