We took part at the exciting 'The Royal Society at the London Science Museum Lates' in summer 2015

Beat the Vision Expert

CICMIL Poster

 

Live crowd experiment on making decision-making about what we see at the Royal Society Summer Science Exhbition 2015. Can the crowd be as good or even better than a trained vision expert at making perceptual decisions? This was part of our Neuron to Nerf guns exhibit (see London Science Museum Late event below).

 

 

 

 

 

Your changing brain: from neurons to Nerf guns 

Plasticity experiment at the Science Museum Lates 2015

 

With many other Royal Society Research Fellows and scientists, we contributed to the London Science Museum Lates in 2015: The next big thing. Together, Oxford colleagues Holly Bridge, Sarah Newey and Kristine Krug developed an exhibit about the Changing Brain:

  1. Demonstrating adaptation when your gaze gets bend while shooting Nerf guns
  2. Comparing expert and crowd judgments on a 3D object
  3. Looking at brains and cells at different ages.
