Meeting Description:

The annual conference of the Cognition Institute, Plymouth University, will be held March 20-22, 2013. The conference is interdisciplinary in nature and will be structured around seven themed oral symposia and poster sessions. In addition evening events include a reception and CogTalk debate, to mark the official launch of the Cognition Institute, and a SciScreen film event.

The Keynote addresses will be given by the Head of Programs at the INCF, Linda Lanyon: Toward globally collaborative science: The International Neuroinformatics Coordinating Facility and Prof Guy Orban: Finding a home for the mirror neurons in human premotor cortex.

What unifying theme brings together psychologists, linguists, neuroscientists, performance artists, biologists and cognitive roboticists? Cognition and how it is driven by our creative impulses and the irresistible ‘Lure of the New’.
