Visual Neuroaesthetics Symposium (VisNA) 2018

In this symposium, we will bring together the experts in the field of visual neuroaesthetics to discuss recent experimental advances and identify new directions for future research. The primary focus will be neuroimaging investigations of visual aesthetic experiences. This includes experiences with visual art, architecture, photography, sculpture, film and dance, as well as non-artistic stimuli such as landscapes, faces and abstract patterns. In addition, work using other neuroscience methods will be included as well as foundational behavioral or computational work that is informative for neuroscientific inquiry and theory.

Neural Oscillations in Speech and Language Processing

Neuere Ergebnisse der auditorischen Neurowissenschaft zeigen, dass neurale Oszillationen sich während der Sprachverarbeitung mit den Rhythmen gesprochener Sprache synchronisieren. Auf höheren Verarbeitungsebenen spiegeln Zyklen kortikaler Erregung und Inhibierung auch Funktionen der syntaktischen und semantischen Verarbeitung wieder. Dieses internationale Symposium bringt führende Sprachforscherinnen und Neurowissenschaftler, die auf dem Feld der neuralen Oszillationen arbeiten, zusammen. Durch intensive Diskussionen und Präsentationen aktueller Arbeiten werden wir die Basis einer einheitlichen Perspektive auf die Rolle neuraler Oszillationen bei der auditorischen Verarbeitung und dem Sprachverständnis legen – vom Phonem bis hin zur Grammatik.

Dieses Symposium findet in englischer Sprache statt.
