Can you hear anxiety? Take part in a live experiment and find out if it’s possible to identify the cause of breathlessness from audio recordings of people breathing. The findings from this study will help researchers Natasha Lovell and Simon Etkind from the Cicely Saunders Institute of Palliative Care, Policy and Rehabilitation at King's College London understand the links between breathlessness and anxiety and could improve how breathlessness is treated in the future.

Free, drop in.

This event is part of ON EDGE: Living in an Age of Anxiety, a free exhibition and events programme at Science Gallery London exploring the causes of and responses to anxiety in contemporary society through art, design, psychology and neuroscience.
