Rovereto Attention Workshop

For more than a century, cognitive scientists and neuroscientists have been trying to understand the properties of attention and its underlying functional and neural mechanisms. This year the workshop will focus on “Attention and Brain Fluctuations”.

The workshop differs from larger conferences in so far as there are a small number of speakers (all invited) and there are no concurrent talks. In addition to the individual talks, there will be a poster session for students, post-docs and young researchers to present their work.

The workshop will run from 6pm of Thursday, November 5 to 1 pm of Sunday, November 8, 2015.


The workshop programme is available here and in the download box.

Here is the programme of poster sessions.
