Rewley House Lecture Series

Next event: Power-posing politicians, pheromones, and other psychological myths, Tristram Wyatt

Time: 8th February 2019, 16:30-18:00

Venue: Lecture Theatre, Rewley House

Abstract: Newspapers often feature studies that sound too good to be true: it turns out they’re myths. Tristram has been looking into one of them – human pheromones. Some myths may be harmless but the phenomenon affects most kinds of research including medicine. The good news is that there’s a new movement tackling misleading unreliable research and trying to give us results we can trust.

This lecture series is an opportunity to experience the extraordinarily diverse research interests of academics across the Department, and to participate in multidisciplinary debate.

We were delighted to start the year with a talk by Dr Vlad Mykhnenko, who discussed resilience as exhibited by Japan's disaster response: 'Resilience planning for sudden shock events: exploring ‘emotional equilibrium’ responses in shrinking cities across Japan'.
