The Royal Institution

For something that is so good for us, swearing gets a bad name.

Ever wondered where swearing evolved from, why we do it, and the effects it has on us? The close connection between bad language and our emotions reveals fascinating truths about how our brains and societies work. In this talk at The Royal Institution, artificial Intelligence researcher and science writer, Emma Byrne, will explore the latest in the neuroscience, psychology, and origins of swearing. 

What to expect?

The doors will open at approximately 6.30pm, with a prompt start at 7.00pm. There will be time for questions after the talk. Latecomers will be admitted to the gallery.
