Satellite Meeting on Multidisciplinary and Translational Advances in Cognitive Control

Attached to the International Conference on Cognitive Neuroscience (ICON), the Satellite Meeting on Translational Advances in Cognitive Control brings together high profile international researchers with a common interest in defining the structural and functional properties of brain networks. The meeting will have a special focus in the area of cognitive control (for example, the ability to efficiently orchestrate higher-order cognitive processes into goal-directed behaviour), but will also touch on related areas as dictated by participant interest (for example, attention, sensory processes and neuroplasticity). 

It is intended to provide a forum to review the current state-of-the-art of multidisciplinary research in the cognitive neurosciences, discuss translational approaches in the field, and debate the challenges for both integrative multidisciplinary research and translation to treatment and policy.

The meeting will run over two days, with different themes: 

Monday 21 July: Integrating knowledge from multidisciplinary approaches: current advances and challenges. 

Tuesday 22 July: Translating knowledge from the cognitive neurosciences to promote healthy living and improve treatment outcomes. 

The morning session will include plenary talks by our invited speakers. The afternoon session will workshop the themes covered in the morning session, with a panel discussion and opportunity for small group discussion fora. 


Registration is free for researchers and post-graduate students affiliated with the Priority Research Centre for Translational Neuroscience and Mental Health and HMRI researchers. However,  please be aware that places are limited.
