CAM 73


Welcome to the Michaelmas 2014 issue of CAM.  This term's cover story is inspired by student cookery nightmares; three culinary experts recall their kitchen experiments at Cambridge.

Highlights include:

  • Conducting volcanic research in North Korea and Antarctica is full of surprises, says Professor Clive Oppenheimer
  • Pamela Evans explores the strange fascination of mannequins hold in the Fitzwilliam Museum's new exhibition, Silent Partners 
  • What happens in the brain when we read?  Lucy Jolin meets scientists, scholars and synaesthetes to find out
