Lambros Malfouris is the Balzan Post-Doctoral Research Fellow in Cognitive Archaeology at the University of Cambridge. His research interests include the archaeology of mind and the anthropology of the brain artefact-interface (BAI) covering topics extending from early stone tools and the exographic symbolic technologies of more recent periods, to the latest developments in neuro-prosthetics and cognitive enhancement. His research aims at developing ways to understand the long-term implications and causal efficacy of material culture in the functional architecture of the human brain and the evolution of human intelligence (especially with reference to human capacities related to self awareness, memory, theory of mind, agency and the body schema). For the last few years he has been working on the Material Engagement approach to the study of mind and the archaeology of extended and distributed cognition. Malfouris also participates in the European Platform for Life Sciences, Mind Sciences, and the Humanities (Volkswagen Stiftung). Part of the 'Embodied Patterns' Lecture Series.

All lectures are open to members of the public, staff and students unless otherwise stated.
