Event details

“The brain is a storytelling machine and it’s really good at fooling us.”     

Nick Payne’s Incognito follows three interwoven stories that explore the conflict between science and self, work and relationships, and the legacy we leave behind.   
In 1955, while performing an autopsy, Thomas Harvey makes a decision that will change his life – he steals Albert Einstein’s brain.    
HM is one of the most recognisable case study patients in neuroscience. We go back to 1953 to discover the man behind the initials.  
In 2014, Martha, a clinical neuropsychologist, struggles to balance work and life. Will a new relationship tip the scales?   
As these storylines merge and blur, we discover what is worth sacrificing in the name of science.
