Talk

How Your Mindset Can Transform Your Life

The Crescent is delighted to welcome to the Cube, NI Science Festival for a series of events as part of their 2023 programme.  

People who believe ageing brings wisdom live longer. Lucky charms really do improve an athlete’s performance. Taking a placebo, even when you know it is a placebo, can still improve your health.

Welcome to The Expectation Effect. In this talk David Robson takes us on a tour of the cutting-edge research happening right now that suggests our expectations shape our experience. Bringing together fascinating case studies and evidence-based science, The Expectation Effect uncovers new techniques that we can all use to improve our fitness, productivity, intelligence, health and happiness.
