An unmissable joint talk by David Eagleman, one of the world’s leading neuroscientists, and bestselling author of the Brain whose TED talk has been viewed 1.5m times, together with the composer Anthony Brandt.

In this talk based on their new book The Runaway Species, David Eagleman and Anthony Brandt unravel the threads of the arts, neuroscience, evolution and technology which make up the tapestry of human creativity, leading us on a tour through the history of innovation from the moon landings to Picasso’s ‘Les Demoiselles d’Avignon’.

In doing so, Brandt and Eagleman offer a powerful examination of creativity, the strategies which stimulate it, and how it can be a driving force to propel us into the future. Through understanding our ability to innovate – our most profound, mysterious and deeply human capacity – we can rise to meet the challenge of remaking our constantly shifting world.
