NEUROCOG is an international conference in cognitive neurosciences intending to provide a workshop for recent advances in all domains of cognitive neurosciences. This year, the conference takes place November, 23-24, 2023, at the Royal Academy in Brussels (Belgium). The conference topic is Neurocognition across the life span.
The 2-day conference is organized around six invited talks provided by leaders in their field. As NEUROCOG really aims at creating a sense of community among the researchers, each keynote talk will be followed by an extended discussion time to encourage interactions between the speaker and the audience. With the same goal of fostering the interactions and discussions among the attendants, there will be no parallel talk sessions and the number of individual talks, as the number of attendants, will be limited. Two guided poster sessions will finally be organized with several poster prizes awarded on a competitive basis.
The social dinner of the meeting will take place at the University Foundation.
Neurocog 2023 also features on 22/11/2023 the satellite symposium and final report of the Excellence of Science (EOS) MEMODYN consortium : “The journey of a memory: dynamics of learning and consolidation in maturation and ageing. What have we learned ?“, click HERE for more information.
Cognitive control contributions to learning and memory: Lifespan development and neural plasticity.
Ensuring efficient learning and memory is not an easy feat: we need to select what and how to learn, acquire new information so that it can be retrieved when needed in the future, and flexibly adapt when circumstances change. Cognitive control processes play a key role … … … [full abstract here]
When the spark goes out: The neurology of apathy and motivation
Disorders of motivation are common across brain disorders. One extreme is the syndrome of pathological loss of motivation – apathy. Unfortunately, we understand very little about the mechanisms underlying this condition. In this talk, I will … … … [full abstract here]
Preserve your mental health to protect your brain : background, mechanisms and evidence
Depression stands as the second most significant risk factor for Alzheimer’s disease within aging populations. Collectively, anxiety, rumination, and depression, often accompanied by sleep disturbances and cognitive impairments, contribute to reduced mental health and overall well-being in aging individuals … … … [full abstract here]
A Brain for Animacy: from Animal Models to Human Babies
To what extent are filial responses the outcome of spontaneous or acquired preferences? The case of domestic chicks (Gallus gallus) illustrates the connection between predisposed and learned knowledge in early social responses. In the absence of specific experience, chicks prefer … … … [full abstract here]
