'Development is the key to understanding the human mind'

In this Public Lecture, celebrated New Zealand academic Professor Vincent Reid will explain how the complexities of the human mind can be understood by exploring how the mind develops. He will also show how different types of information are understood differently - from the social world to how our vision develops as we get older.

With a focus on the human infant, and recently the human fetus, this public lecture will draw on Professor Reid's extensive research experience to illustrate how the human mind and brain work - and why you should care about it. Professor Reid will illustrate the development of the mind with a mix of methods from psychology and the neurosciences.

Professor Reid, a new appointment at Waikato University from Lancaster University in the UK, is currently the Head of School for Psychology. For more information on Professor Reid and his work please click here.
