The Centre for the Study of Perceptual Experience (CSPE) is taking part in this year’s Glasgow Science Festival with researchers from the Rethinking the Senses and Value of Suffering projects demonstrating the latest research on the science and philosophy of the senses.

Glasgow Science Festival at Kelvingrove

Can what you see affect what you hear?

How do taste and smell create the experience of flavour?

What makes smells nice or nasty?

Can you hear whether something is hot or cold?

Come to the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum between 1:30 and 4:30pm on Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th June 2015 to experience the mysterious and surprising world of taste, smell, and multisensory illusions. Participate in fun and interactive activities that demonstrate how our senses work together to create an integrated experience of the world… and what happens when they go wrong!
