Are we free to shape our own destiny? Or are our lives already mapped out? Hannah Critchlow will discuss the recent neuroscience challenging our concept of agency. Hannah will uncover just how much of our behaviour is predetermined and ask, is there anything we can do to alter our brain biology and better shape our futures?
