新加坡六合彩开奖直播 Annual scientific meeting 2021


Despite the trying circumstances of 2021 we managed to gather. 新加坡六合彩开奖直播 joined the BNA for a virtual meeting taking place on the 12-15 April giving our delegates the opportunity to experience a wide-ranging selection of symposia and talks and join a large scientific community for discourse. The president鈥檚 invited lecture was delivered by Prof. Philippe Schyns from the University of Glasgow. The Mid-Career Prize lecture was given by Prof. Heidi Johansen-Berg from the University of Oxford, followed by the Early-Career Prize lecture given by Dr. Beatriz Calvo-Merino (City University, London). We thank all our speakers and delegates for coming together to make a memorable 2021 meeting!

Our 2019 meeting took place on the 2nd and 3rd of September in the historical city of Cambridge. The meeting featured a keynote address delivered by Kia Nobre (University of Oxford) and prize lectures by Patrick Haggard (University College London) and Micah Allen (Aarhus University). In addition to six free platform talks, the conference included three symposia. Edward de Haan chaired a series of talks on Split brain: split or unified agency, John Duncan & Alexandra Woolgar headed a symposia on the information content of brain activity in real time and Katherine Dyke chaired a symposia entitled Brain stimulation as therapy - who responds? This conference also saw the first introduction of speed presentations in which a number of poster presenters were given a 3 minute slot to present their work. Due to the large number of excellent submissions we also held a satellite event on the 4th of September on Language and Cognition.

The evening鈥檚 entertainment was provided by the Firecrest Ceilidh band at Browns Bar and Brasserie. We were thoroughly impressed with the high standard of academic work showcased at this conference and hope to see many of you again next year in Brighton!

新加坡六合彩开奖直播 2018 annual scientific meeting


The two-day meeting was hosted by Gregor Thut and Marios Philiastides at the University of Glasgow. It featured a keynote address by Charlotte Stag (University of Oxford) and two career prize winner talks delivered by Chris Miall (University of Birmingham; Mid-Career) and Joseph Galea (University of Birmingham; Early-Career).

In addition to high quality open platform talks and posters we accepted three symposia. Gregor Thut and Marios Philiastides chaired a symposium on the decoding and driving of brain activity. Olaf Hauk headed a symposium on neuroscientific investigations of language processing and Stephanie Rossit chaired a symposium on human neuroimaging of predictive processing.

Because we also like to have a good time at 新加坡六合彩开奖直播 conferences our hosts organised a delicious dinner at the Hilton Glasgow Grosvenor which was followed by our traditional ceilidh dance.

bACN MEETINGS 2005-2016

In 2016, we went abroad to the beautiful city of Budapest where the 3-day meeting was held jointly with the Hungarian Academy of Sciences. Further past meetings have been held at the University of Essex in Colchester (2015) and the University of York (2014). In 2013, the 新加坡六合彩开奖直播 conference was hosted at the University of Nottingham and further back saw us gather at the University of Newcastle (2012), University of the West of England Bristol (2010), University College London (2009), Swansea (2008), Dundee (2007), Coventry (2006) and Aston University (2005).
