Hearing the Voice are delighted to invite you to our forthcoming events exploring the cognitive and neural mechanisms that underly voice hearing and other unusual experiences. These events are free and accompany the ‘Hearing Voices: suffering, inspiration, and the everyday‘ exhibition at Palace Green Library. All are welcome to attend either or both discussions, but places are limited and need to be reserved in advance by following the links below.

‘Inner speech and the voices within’
Learning Centre, Palace Green Library
6 December 2016, from 5:30 – 7:30pm

An important scientific theory about why people hear voices explains it in terms of inner speech: the ordinary silent conversation that people have with themselves. According to this theory, individuals hear voices when they produce some inner speech but, for some reason, do not recognise it as their own. In this event, Professor Charles Fernyhough (Project Director, Hearing the Voice) and Dr Peter Moseley (Postdoctoral Research Associate in Psychology, Hearing the Voice) we will consider some problems with the inner speech account of hearing voices, and describe some of the scientific work that is being done in Hearing the Voice to develop and refine the theory. Please reserve your place in advance by following the link below.

Please reserve your place in advance through Eventbrite.

‘The predictive brain’
Learning Centre, Palace Green Library
8 December 2016, from 5.30 pm – 7.30 pm

Dr Ben Alderson-Day (Co-Investigator, Hearing the Voice) and Dr Sam Wilkinson (Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Philosophy, Hearing the Voice) explore how the predictive processing framework can lead to a better understanding of hearing voices and other unusual experiences.

Please reserve your place in advance through Eventbrite.
