Come along to a free public lecture in Morecambe on March 21 by psychologist Dr Kirsty Dunn from Lancaster University exploring what we learn before we are born.

How are the things that we hear, see, taste, and feel before birth already influencing our abilities and preferences for what we like to see and listen to after birth?

‘What we learn before we are born’ is the eye-opening topic of a free Public Lecture by Dr Kirsty Dunn, a Developmental Psychologist at Lancaster University. The prenatal period is a time of intense and rapid development, and our brain and sensory systems develop to surprisingly sophisticated levels – the womb is not the pitch-black environment we once imagined!
