Museum explores the science of a zombie outbreak

The Science Museum in London is holding a number of events which explore the science of consciousness through the example of a zombie outbreak.

Among the experiences on offer at the 'ZombieLab' is an Academy which teaches people how to act like a zombie. There are also tasks that people can undertake to prove they are not a zombie.

Dr Anil Seth, professor of cognitive and computational neuroscience at the University of Sussex, hopes the events will make people think about what "consciousness really is".
