Empty Shop is all about opportunity, you can use our HQ venue to host any number of creative or cultural events.
Cafe Scientifique Durham City is a nonprofit organisation dedicated to science outreach in Durham. We run weekly cafes with speakers from Durham University (and others!), who are always happy to chat about their research or science in general afterwards.
In this talk, Liam Norman will cover some of the more interesting aspects of colour vision, and how these aspects tell us about how colour vision works, from the mechanisms of low-level photoreceptors in the eye to the processes in the brain that determine that colours that we actually become conscious of.
As always, we will be meeting in the Empty Shop, which is just outside The Gates Shopping Centre. There will be a board outside so you know where you are going! The ‘doors’ will open at 3:45 pm and the talk will be starting at 4:00 pm. See you there!

More about Cafe Sci
We meet at 3:45pm each Saturday during term time at Empty Shop.
The cafe is ran by Josh Borrow and John D’Silva, who are Physics and Natural Sciences students respectively. They have recently taken the cafe over from Jamal Kinsella and Tim Wiles, who ran it for a number of years.
The cafe is hosted in Empty Shop Durham, who have been providing us with space and help since around May 2014. Empty Shop is a reasonably large venue, meaning our capacity is about 50 people. There is a bar, which you can order drinks and snacks from to graze on during the talk – it wouldn’t be much of a cafe otherwise! You can find out more about Empty Shop on their website.
The cafe is funded by the Natural Sciences Society of Durham University, which we are wholefully grateful for. We use the money that they give us to promote future cafes and to buy equipment that we need.
