University of Glasgow Announces Tower Helter Skelter
We're thrilled to announce the true purpose of the University of Glasgow’s iconic tower construction work - to create the world’s first helter skelter inside a listed building! For months, construction crews have worked in total secrecy inside the 279-foot-tall tower, to install a state-of-the-art helter skelter which will be open to the public from the end of April. Nearly half a kilometre of tightly twisting slide is packed into the historic tower, and we hope it'll attract visitors from around the world. http://www.gla.ac.uk/news/headline_453752_en.html

Dissection of a Sand Fly Gut
Sand flies transmit the Leishmania parasite which causes the disease Leishmaniasis. A disease that causes painful and disfiguring lesions in the skin and can be fatal if it affects the major organs of the body. Millions are at risk and current treatments can have dangerous side effects. Scientists at the Wellcome Centre for Molecular Parasitology are studying the transmission of this parasite to understand its complex lifecycle in more detail, in the hope that this will lead to safer treatments. The Leishmania parasite develops into human infective forms in the gut of the sand fly. In order to study this important stage of the lifecycle, the gut of the sand fly must be removed and studied in greater detail. In this short film, Dr Hector Diaz Albiter demonstrates how the gut of the sand fly is removed in a delicate and highly skilled procedure. http://www.gla.ac.uk/researchinstitutes/iii/wtcmp/

The Gifford Lectures in Natural Theology, 2016, lecture 2
The Gifford Lectures in Natural Theology, 2016: The Big Picture: On the Origins of Life, Meaning, and the Universe Itself. Prof Sean Carroll, Caltech Lecture 2. The Stuff of Which We Are Made: There is much that we don't know about the universe, but there is also much that we do know – and that knowledge includes a set of ingredients and rules that suffices to completely account for the stuff underlying our everyday experience. We are collections of vibrating quantum fields, obeying a set of laws known as the Core Theory. Future discoveries will teach us much about the nature of reality, but the basic picture of the particles and forces that make up you and me is secure. https://www.preposterousuniverse.com/blog/2016/11/23/gifford-lectures-on-natural-theology/ http://www.gla.ac.uk/gifford/

Illusions, delusions and the brain. A Ramachandran lecture on body image and mind body interactions.
This lecture by Prof. V.S. Ramachandran (University of California, San Diego) will focus on body image and mind body interactions. http://www.glasgow.ac.uk/index.html?refer=guyoutube This year's prestigious University of Glasgow Gifford Lecture Series will feature three talks from V.S. Ramachandran, the Director of the Centre for Brain and Cognition and Distinguished Professor with the Psychology Department and Neurosciences Program at the University of California. Founded in 1887 by the bequest of Lord Gifford, the annual Gifford Lecture Series was established to promote, advance and diffuse the study of Natural Theology in the widest sense of that term. The focus of this series will be 'Body and Mind; Insights from Neuroscience.' Ramachandran said: "Monday's lecture will focus on body image and mind body interactions, while Wednesday's lecture will deal with understanding higher brain functions through studies of synesthesia and other types of intersensory interactions, including discoveries of mirror neurons. I will also touch on the important deeper philosophical implications that surround these subject areas." Dr Susan Stuart, Senior Lecturer in Philosophy at the University of Glasgow said: "It is our great pleasure that Vilayanur S. Ramachandran has agreed to present the 2012 Gifford lectures at the University of Glasgow. Ramachandran is one of the world's leading neuroscientists; he has been responsible for groundbreaking work in the fields of behavioural neurology and psychophysics. "His work on autism, visual processing, and synaesthesia is truly pioneering and during his career he has carried out marvellous work on understanding and treating phantom limb disorders as well as linking between temporal lobe epilepsy and hyper-religiosity, a field now known as 'neurotheology' or 'spiritual neuroscience'." Biography: V.S. Ramachandran is Director of the Center for Brain and Cognition and Distinguished Professor with the Psychology Department and Neurosciences Program at the University of California, San Diego, and Adjunct Professor of Biology at the Salk Institute. Ramachandran initially trained as a doctor and subsequently obtained a Ph.D. from Trinity College at the University of Cambridge. Ramachandran's early work was on visual perception but he is best known for his experiments in behavioral neurology which, despite their apparent simplicity, have had a profound impact on the way we think about the brain. He has been called "The Marco Polo of neuroscience" by Richard Dawkins and "The modern Paul Broca" by Eric Kandel. In 2005 he was awarded the Henry Dale Medal and elected to an honorary life membership by the Royal Instituion of Great Britain, where he also gave a Friday evening discourse (joining the ranks of Michael Faraday, Thomas Huxley, Humphry Davy, and dozens of Nobel Laureates). His other honours and awards include fellowships from All Souls College, Oxford, and from Stanford University (Hilgard Visiting Professor); the Presidential Lecture Award from the American Academy of Neurology, two honorary doctorates, the annual Ramon Y Cajal award from the International Neuropsychiatry Society, and the Ariens-Kappers medal from the Royal Netherlands Academy of Sciences. In 2003 he gave the annual BBC Reith lectures and was the first physician/psychologist to give the lectures since they were begun by Bertrand Russel in 1949. In 1995 he gave the Decade of the Brain lecture at the 25th annual (Silver Jubilee) meeting of the Society for Neuroscience. In 2010 he delivered the annual Jawaharlal Nehru memorial lecture in New Delhi, India. Most recently the President of India conferred on him the second highest civilian award and honorific title in India, the Padma Bhushan. And TIME magazine named him on their list of the 100 most influential people in the world. Ramachandran has published over 180 papers in scientific journals (including five invited review articles in the Scientific American). He is author of the acclaimed book "Phantoms in the Brain" that has been translated into nine languages and formed the basis for a two part series on Channel Four TV (UK) and a 1 hour PBS special in USA. NEWSWEEK magazine has named him a member of "The Century Club" -- one of the "hundred most prominent people to watch in the next century." He has been profiled in the New Yorker Magazine and appeared on the Charlie Rose Show. His new book, "The Tell Tale Brain" was on the New York Times best-seller list. In addition, Ramachandran has an interest in history and archaeology (see his article on the Indus Valley Code).

The Gifford Lectures in Natural Theology, 2016: The Big Picture: On the Origins of Life, Meaning, and the Universe Itself. Prof Sean Carroll, Caltech Lecture 3. Layers of Reality: When we look at the world, we don't see individual atoms and particles. The world we see is an image of macroscopic objects and causes. One of the most profound features of reality is that it appears to us in layers – self-contained emergent descriptions at one level are consistent with, but autonomous from, what is going on down below. Different ways of talking about the world reveal fundamentally distinct kinds of concepts, each of which deserves to be called "real" if it accurately captures some part of the bigger picture. https://www.preposterousuniverse.com/blog/2016/11/23/gifford-lectures-on-natural-theology/ http://www.gla.ac.uk/gifford/
