Every last Tuesday in the month, from September 2015 on, the IMC is organizing a full-day interactive workshop, each featuring one hot topic in cognitive neuroscience research. We will have a group of researchers presenting various methodological approaches to the topic in the morning, and this is concluded with an open discussion in the afternoon about how we can meaningfully investigate this topic "in interaction", and what the theoretical implications are. 

The topic of the second IMC bootcamp workshop is the Default-Mode Network (DMN), which will be discussed from multiple methodological perspectives by Daniel Margulies from the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences, Danilo Bzdok from the Department of Psychiatry, RWTH University Aachen, Jonathan Smallwood from the University of York (https://www.york.ac.uk/psychology/research/groups/mind-wandering/) and Micah Allen from the Functional Imaging Lab at UCL.

Participation is open to all, but registration is required, using this link: 

PhD Students can receive credits for active participation (including literature preparation and documentation), see phdcourses.dk/Course/41214 (to be updated).
