Metacognition in an interactive perspective

(NB: Unfortunately, there are no more spaces available, but you'll be put on a waiting list and notified when more are available. Apologies for the inconvenience)

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 first workshop will be on the 22nd of September, 9.15am. The topic of the workshop is Metacognition, which will be introduced by Prof Chris Frith. We will also be visited by Dr Steve Fleming from the Wellcome Trust Centre for Neuroimaging at UCL, Dr Armin Lak from the Visual Neuroscience Department at UCL,  Anne Urai from University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf, Dan Bang from the Summerfield Lab in Oxford, and Dr Micah Allen from the Wellcome Trust Centre for Neuroimaging at UCL as discussant. 

Participation is open to all, but registration is required, using this link: http://goo.gl/forms/2VRozOSTkw (NB: Unfortunately, there are no more spaces available, but you'll be put on a waiting list and notified when more are available) 

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