How do others see us and how do we see them? The science of ‘mind perception’ is the work of Professor Kurt Gray of the University of Maryland’s Mind Perception and Morality Lab.

His work ranges from how people see those in a persistent vegetative state as worse than dead, to how people are more sympathetic to someone who’s a victim than a villain. Dr Gray examined how we see naked people differently. We don’t objectify them as popular culture suggests.

And most recently he’s found that a little kindness makes a big difference to people. See our full story here.

Dr Kurt Gray spoke to Bob Hughes in an exclusive interview about his research.
