Future Meetings and Workshops

Research Workshop: The organisational principles of the visual ventral stream: convergent evidence from neuroimaging, neuropsychology, and computational modelling. To be held at the MRC Cognition & Brain Sciences Unit, University of Cambridge. 23 September 2019

This workshop will bring together researchers who are studying the organisation of the visual ventral stream from different methodological perspectives, not only to promote discussion between these established groups, but also to promote collaboration with a wider audience. Registration is open now to all (both EPS members and non-members). Spaces are limited to a total of 90 attendees. There are around 10 spaces still available (as of 17.09.19), if you would still like to attend please register via:

Research Workshop: Brain, Cognition, Emotion and Music (BCEM): The Quartet with a Missing Link. To be held at the University of Kent. 20-21 May 2020.

Undeniably, music induces emotions, motivating research and theories in several domains of psychology, including cognitive and cognitive neuroscience. Cognitive research suggests that music-induced emotions result from processes including employment of music syntax, memory, and prediction. Cognitive neuroscience investigates the contribution of particular brain regions to the processing of musical features and music-evoked emotions. However, the link among the four domains of Brain, Cognition, Emotions, and Music is less clear, and understanding music’s induction of emotions can be examined via multidisciplinary theories all these areas. Thus, the BCEM meeting aims to highlight the wide variety of research into music, emotions, cognition, and the brain, as well as integrating these areas to examine the missing links among them.

The organisers invite all students, researchers and academics to attend the conference, as well as present oral presentations and/or posters. Further information regarding the programme and registration will become available in October 2019. Meanwhile, feel free to contact Amir at a.h.javadi@kent.ac.uk.

Organisers: Amir‐Homayoun Javadi, Andrea Halpern and Amelia Turrell.
