2016 Australasian Cognitive Neuroscience Society Conference
- 24-27th November 2016
Shoal Bay, NSW
This year’s Australasian Cognitive Neuroscience Society Conference focuses on the study of the neural basis of human perception, cognition and emotion, especially through brain imaging. The conference encompasses both basic research, and research that examines the implications of brain-behaviour relationships for medical, educational, public health, and organisational practice. It will feature new “fast-talks”: 10 minute presentations (including questions) for sharing findings clearly and concisely.
Topics include brain imaging and behavioural studies in:
- Cognitive and Decision-Making
- Emotion and Social Processes
- Memory and Learning
- Methods Development
- Motor Processes
- Sensation and Perception
Confirmed keynote speakers:
- David Strayer, Professor of Cognition and Neural Science, University of Utah.
- Denise C. Park, Director of Research at the Center for Vital Longevity, Distinguished University Chair in Behavioral and Brain Sciences, and Regents’ Research Scholar, University of Texas, Dallas.
- Rosalyn Moran, Assistant Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Medicine, Virginia Tech Carilion.
ACNS 2016 is hosted by the University of Newcastle at the beachfront Ramada Resort at Shoal Bay.
The conference will open with a keynote address and reception on the afternoon of Thursday 24th November, and close on Sunday afternoon after the AGM and awards.
Technical and Early-career researcher workshops will be run on the day prior to the conference opening, and on Thursday.
