Outreach and Engagement

The lab actively seeks out opportunities to engage with the community, through popular science media, television, and radio. Here are some examples:

Article in Pursuit about time perception during COVID-19 lockdown

Did the pandemic lockdown mess with your experience of time? Hinze wrote an article for Pursuit about how the COVID-19 pandemic (and lockdown specifically) influenced our experience of time last year. (2021). link.

Article in the Conversation about our recent EEG-decoding paper in PNAS

We were invited to write an article for The Conversation about what Tessel's 2020 PNAS paper can tell us about how the brain uses prediction to allow us to function in the present, and how this can lead to us 'seeing' an expected present that never comes to pass. (2020). link.

Explaining prediction on Channel 10's SCOPE

Channel 10's children's program SCOPE visited the lab to discuss how the brain uses prediction to allow us to compensate for its own delays. (2018). link.

Article on prediction in Pursuit Magazine

Pursuit, the University of Melbourne's outreach magazine, wrote an article on our work on prediction on the basis of our 2018 Journal of Neuroscience paper. (2018). link.

Time in the Brain at TEDxUU

Hinze was invited to give a talk about time in the brain at TEDxUtrechtUniversity, an independently organized TED event with theme ‘Change from Within’. The aim of this talk was to make some of his fundamental research accessible for a broad audience. (2016). link

Article in TVOO on Time in the Brain (Dutch)

Hinze was invited to write an article for the Dutch management magazine Tijdschrift voor Ontwikkeling in Organisaties ("Journal for Development in Organisations") about time in the brain, and how our experience of the present moment is actually an illusion. (2015). link.

Episode on time in Dutch popular science TV show 'Labyrinth'

Hinze was invited to contribute to the episode "De dimensie tijd (the time dimension)" on the Dutch national television program VPRO Labyrinth. (2013). link.

Understanding awareness: it's about time

Hinze was invited to write an article for SCOPE, the academic magazine of University College Utrecht (the Netherlands) about why understanding the time-course of neural processes is fundamental to understanding perception, awareness, and consciousness. (2013). link.
