Teatime with the 2014 Jean Nicod Prize winners Uta & Chris Frith, on their graphic novel 'Two Heads'

Uta and Chris Frith are Emeritus Professors at UCL. In 2014, they were collectively awarded the Jean Nicod Prize, as a reward for all their work on social cognition.

This award and the four lectures on “What makes us social” given on the occasion, provided inspiration and funding for the production of a graphic novel named “Two heads, Where Two Neuroscientists Explore How Our Brains Work with Other Brains”.

While visiting Paris, Uta and Chris took the time for a tea break at the ENS, to discuss with us this graphic novel written with their author son Alex Frith and illustrated by the artist and graphic novelist Daniel Locke.
