QBI-MCN Autumn School and Workshop in Human Cognitive Neuroscience
As the latest event in an ongoing collaboration of the Munich Centre for Neurosciences (MCN-LMU) with the Queensland Brain Institute (QBI) that started in 2010, an Autumn School and Workshop in Human Cognitive Neuroscience was hosted by the QBI from May 1–6, 2014.
The Theme of the Workshop was “Multimodal Attention and Perception of Space”. The focus was placed on recent advances in understanding attentional selection and spatial processing, concentrating on the human visual and auditory systems.
Day 1 of the Workshop was held at the QBI, and involved guest lectures from visiting and local faculty.
Days 2 – 5 took place at the University of Queensland (UQ) Heron Island Marine Research Station, and included presentations from both students and faculty, as well as focused discussions around the latest human cognitive neuroscience research.
