Science study for Oscar star Firth
Move over Brian Cox - Oscar winner Colin Firth could be the new poster boy for science after being credited as an author of an academic paper.
The King's Speech star is listed as co-author of a study into human brains which has been hailed as a "useful contribution" to the field.
The work stemmed from Firth's guest editorship on Radio 4's Today programme in December.
He is the latest star to be associated with science after Prof Cox helped to popularise his field on TV shows.
