Why are the public and media are so fascinated with serial killers and the criminally insane? CMCI’s Dr Ricarda Vidal will join forensic psychiatrists Dr Nigel Blackwood and Professor Thomas Fahy to discuss the relationship between criminal behaviour and mental disorders in relation to topics such as free will and genetic predisposition.

Dr Vidal will provide an insight into society’s fascination with death and murder, in particular, serial killer art and why people want to buy it.

The Mind-Brain Forum: Criminal Minds takes place on Tuesday 17 November, 18:30-20:30 at G.12 NHH, Guy’s Campus. Cost: Free for members (£5 annual membership), £2 for non-members.
To find out more please email: mindbrainforum@gmail.com There will be wine and nibbles after the talk.
