Vision Impossible: A lecture by Professor Colin Blakemore


Professor Colin Blakemore, Neurobiologist and Chief Executive of the Medical Research Council.

A lecture by Colin Blakemore, Professor of Neuroscience at the Universities of Oxford and Warwick

Vision seems so easy. Just open your eyes and the world is there in all its glory. But seeing is by far the most difficult thing that we do. Twenty thousand million nerve cells; two thousand billion connections; 4% of all the food we eat. That's what it takes to see. Colin Blakemore will reveal the tricks, deceit and artistry through which the brain invents the world that we see.
