A neuroscientist and a writer try to communicate.
THE NEUROMANTICS is a monthly podcast, featuring Will Eaves (a poet and novelist) and Sophie Scott (a neuroscientist). They set out to investigate science, art and literature. Sophie gives Will a scientific paper to read: Will gives Sophie a text or a poem to read, and they try to make sense of art and science.
Will Eaves won the 2019 Wellcome Trust book prize for his recent novel, Murmur: he has published 5 novels and 2 books of poetry.
Sophie Scott is a Professor of Cognitive Neuroscience at UCL and was the 2017 Royal Institution Christmas Lecturer. She has published over 130 peer reviewed scientific papers and she intends to make Will read them all.
