10th IMPRS NeuroCom Summer School

of the IMPRS NeuroCom and the Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience at UCL London

05-08 July 2021, virtual event

We are pleased to invite you to the 10th IMPRS NeuroCom Summer School in Cognitive Neuroscience, which will take place from 05-08 July 2021 as a joint virtual event of the Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience at University College London, UK and IMPRS NeuroCom at MPI CBS and Leipzig University.

The summer school will bring together well-known scientists, postdocs and early career researchers from all over the world to enlighten and discuss some key topics of Cognitive Neuroscience.

The organization committee has invited a wide range of renowned scientists from around the globe as well as local speakers from UK.

Lectures will cover the following topics:

  • Spatial navigation and memory
  • Perceptual representation and coding
  • Real-world Neuroscience - getting out of the lab 
  • Reading & Language

In addition there will be expertise sessions on:

  • Ethics and research inclusivity
  • Career building
  • Research integrity

We will also offer experimental design small group workshops, where students are challenged to design a cognitive neuroscience experiment under the guidance of PostDocs.  This small group work is evaluated by a committee and an experimental design prize is awarded at the end of the summer school.

We cordially invite national and international early career researchers, but also early postdoctoral researchers working in the interdisciplinary field of cognitive neuroscience.

Poster sessions:

Participants are invited to present their current work in form of a poster. All posters will be shared in interactive online poster sessions with other students and the poster judges.  The summer school committee will award a poster prize (refund of registration fee) to the best poster.  Posters can present either a complete study OR a plan for a proposed study.

Working Language: English
