The Norwich Science Café provides an opportunity to enjoy approachable science themed talks in a relaxed atmosphere whilst enjoying a drink. Talks are held at 7:30pm in the Maddermarket Theatre bar. The format of the evening is a 30-40 min talk followed by a refreshment break and questions/discussion. Talks are currently free and there is no need to book, just turn up.
For centuries scientists have tried to rationalise the processes we all use to make choices and decisions. Most of the research has concerned gambling and financial choices, such as insurance, but decisions we make about lifestyle and health care are just as important. Understanding how we mix rationality and emotions when decision making brings hopes for better predictions, or even opportunities for influence, but in many situations we are all stubbornly unpredictable.
