What Happens in our Brain When We Improvise?

A Sci-bar event to mark Manchester’s year as the European City of Science. Dr Graeme Wilson, from the University of Edinburgh, leads an interactive debate looking at the way in which the brain responds to improvisation, illustrated with performances from accomplished players Adam Fairhall and Tom Ward. The duo share with the audience their approach to improvisational dialogue in this intimate and conversational setting.
