Show Notes

A discussion between Sophie Scott and Prof John Morton FRS, OBE. Sophie did her PhD on P-Centres which were first described by John Morton along with Stephen Marcus and Clive Frankish, and this discussion does get very P-centre-y. Perceptual centres, or P-centres, are the perceptual moment of occurrence of a word or any sound, that you would use when making g that sound to a rhythm, for example. 

What is What Works??

Prof Sophie Scott, Director of the Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience at University College London, discusses life and science and careers with her colleagues from the Division of Psychology and Language Sciences at UCL, and beyond. The aim of the show is to highlight some amazing scientists, and explore their journeys through science and life, and find out what works for them.
