Synopsis: The Friday Evening Discourses of the Royal Institution, initiated by Michael Faraday in 1826, are one of the most prestigious series of lectures on science. Famous scientists describe their work in a language accessible to a general audience. Each year, accounts of the Discourses are brought together in the Proceedings; these volumes provide some of the best popular writing by active scientists. This latest volume covers diverse areas of contemporary and historical interest: the use of natural products in pharmacology; the role of the brain in art appreciation; the Hubble space telescope; the laser treatment of myopia; nature conservation; the role of alcohol in the development of human civilization; one hundred years of radioactivity; and one hundred years of radio.
