    Humans are inherently social and have worked together for millennia, precariously balancing trust and mistrust in others. It is not easy to know where to place our trust as errors and biases beset not only our gut feelings but also our reasoning. Join incoming BSA President Professor Uta Frith, celebrated neuroscientist and autism researcher, as she argues that diversity provides a solution for groups to overcome these biases to make the ‘right’ choice.
