BNA President, Professor John Aggleton joins with President of Royal Society of Literature, Colin Thubron to discuss their work and knowledge of memory.

John Aggleton is a world expert in the neural basis on memory; looking at anatomical, behavioural and clinical methods to develop an understanding of different brain regions and connections that are important for learning and memory. His current research is looking into how the diencephalon and the medial temporal lobes work together, both key areas in memory function.

One of the character's lives looked at is a neurosurgeon, Thubron used John Aggleton's research to help portray the character's thoughts on neuroscience.
