Off to Ghent…

Well I can safely say I don’t think I could have practised the talk I will give this Saturday at 11.02 (!) at De Bijloke in Ghent for TEDx anymore than I have.

This morning saw my last practise run to around 50 secondary school students with an interest in psychology. Not surprisingly teens don’t respond in the same way as adults. At one moment when they spontaneously tittered at one comment, it was followed immediately by a collective squirming in seats as they realised they had shown a visible reaction. They sat quietly and patiently and gave me a large round of applause at the end so as far as I was concerned they were a great audience.

Saturday will see me give the big talk itself; and my husband can be reassured he will not have to listen to me practise it anymore.

This is the real story of Patient h69. A gripping but compelling real-time account of one patient’s experience of suddenly going blind. There are personal accounts of going blind, but few if any, have reported the other side of the story – the rebirth of sight, and as a result, the impact of that on modern neuroscience.
