HVALA ZA NEVRONE 2.6: NE ŠKANDALIZIRAJ
V tokratni debati se bomo pogovarjali o medijskem poročanju in o tem, če negativne informacije bolj pritegnejo našo pozornost kot pozitivne. V tokratni debati se bomo na podlagi konkretnih primerov novinarskega poročanja spraševali, zakaj je večina objavljenih prispevkov obarvanih negativno. Lahko rečemo, da s tem gojimo našo sposobnost empatije ali poglabljamo negativizem?
K sodelovanju ste tudi tokrat vabljeni vsi znanstveni navdušenci. Študentje in strokovnjaki, radovedneži in tisti, ki že imate izoblikovano svoje mnenje, predvsem pa tisti, ki radi govorite in aktivno sodelujete v debati.
International conference IS 2013, Cognitive science: Conference proceedings
We are happy to announce that this year's conference proceedings are now available online (proceedings A).
The papers presented at the Cognitive science conference speak for themselves when it comes to scientific quality and especially interdisciplinary approach. Over 25 participants from four different countries greatly contribute to diversity, a wide spectrum of topics of the study of the mind.
The first invited speaker is dr. Ronald Sladky, one of the first graduates of the Middle European joint masters in cognitive science, who is now a renowned neuroscientist at the Medical university of Vienna. His paper presents various approaches to the research of social anxiety disorder, the topic which has been his point of research interest for a longer period of time now. The second invited guest is dr. Samo Kreft, professor at Faculty of Pharmacy, University of Ljubljana. His psper presents an overview of the placebo research – a fascinating phenomenon that is gaining momentum within cognitive science in recent years.
Other contributions include interesting phenomenological research, covering methodological questions as well as very concrete experiential areas such as dreams and food related thoughts. Not unrelated, next group reports on attempts of scientific understanding of consciousness. The core of the conference topics consists of papers presenting neuroimaging, neuroscientific studies, social learning and mind-body-environment integration, all these rounded up with a critical philosophical reflection. The proceedings also include contributions from the field of psychology, anthropology, linguistics and art to round up a truly colorful palette of contemporary cognitive science.
This year, we have decided to give a chance also to younger presenters. The new era of scientific research shows great demand for interdisciplinarity and we believe that young blood means a great potential for collaboration, not only among various disciplines, but also among different generations of researchers, as it opens a fresh new look to the old ideas and methods.
