Enlightening and entertaining! Dr. Wiseman has established an international reputation for research into the scientific examination of unusual areas within psychology. His lecture will cover these many interests, including: the Luck Project, lying and lie detection, the psychology of magic, eyewitness testimony, the psychology of the paranormal, and experimenter bias in ESP research. Dr. Wiseman heads the psychology lab at the University of Hertfordshire, but he started his working life as an award-winning professional magician, so he may just dazzle the audience with a little magic when he discusses his latest book: Magic in Theory: An Introduction to the Theoretical and Psychological Elements of Conjuring.

Wiseman’s work has been reported in over 40 academic journal articles, including Nature, Science and Psychological Bulletin. In addition, he has co-authored six books and presented over 50 papers at both national and international conferences.
