After the big success of the first edition of CogniTalks last year and the positive feedback we got, we are organizing a second edition in the Pakhuis de Zwijger! For this event, we again invited 4 cognitive (neuro)scientists who will be coming to speak to us about an idea they are very passionate about. The topics of the night will vary from spatial orientation and the transmission of smells to the senses and bionic brains! And after the talks we’ll all have the opportunity to discuss them together with a drink at the bar.
The programme of the night is as follows:
|19:00||Doors open (please arrive in time!)|
|19:30 – 21:30||Talks! (with a break inbetween)|
|Chris Klink – Dawn of the Bionic Brain|
|Romke Rouw – Now you see it now you don’t: How your brain creates sensations|
|Max Keuken – Here be dragons: Knowing where you are in the brain and why it matters!|
|Garmt Dijksterhuis – Olfactory transmission impossible?|
|21:30||Drinks at the bar!|
We hope to see you all at Pakhuis de Zwijger for CogniTalks again, to make it at least as successful as last year’s edition! Check out our event at Pakhuis de Zwijger’s website as well (and don’t forget to register there!), and follow our Facebook event to stay up to date. See you next week!
