Welcome to Maidstone Skeptics in the Pub, monthlyish talks from experts on science, skepticism, critical thinking and myth busting, held at The Style and Winch on Union Street.

The talks are normally £5 to cover costs, with any extra going to The Good Thinking Society, whose work promoting science and skepticism has helped changed laws in the U.K, and the Against Malaria Foundation, who are one of the top rated chariies at givewell.org who say ''The Against Malaria Foundation (AMF) is one of our top-rated charities and we feel that it offers donors an outstanding opportunity to accomplish good with their donations.'

For more information about the idea behind Skeptics in the Pub please look at this BBC Report and this Wikipedia entry.

What's the talk about?

Hypnosis is a valuable method for studying different facets of conscious awareness yet it continues to be one of the most misrepresented and misunderstood phenomenon in psychology. Here I will dispel widespread myths and misconceptions about hypnosis and describe what psychologists, neuroscientists, and clinicians have learned about this fascinating phenomenon.
 
Devin Terhune is a Senior Lecturer in Psychology at Goldsmiths, University of London where he studies conscious awareness and its top-down regulation. His primary interests concern the neurocognitive basis of time perception and individual differences in hypnotic suggestibility.
