Bio

Sophie Scott is a professor at the Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience at University College London, where she studies the neurobiology of speech perception. She joined us at the Secret Garden Party in 2012 with a Laughter Clinic, where we explored the science behind our sniggers (and tested whether it really is true that people over 40 do not respond to tickling).
