Although Chris retired from his position at the Wellcome Centre for Neuroimaging at UCL in 2007, he continues to develop the new discipline of neural hermeneutics. This discipline concerns the neural basis of social interaction. In October 2011 Chris was elected a two-year fellow of All-Souls where he organised a series of seminars on Meta-cognition in order to explore the critical role of this process in sharing experiences. Chris's main experimental work is currently performed in the interacting minds centre at Aarhus University. He is trying to delineate the mechanisms underlying this human ability to share representations of the world for it is this ability that makes communication possible.
