Explore the nature of how we think at the 21st Annual CNS meeting in Boston

Cognitive Neuroscience Society

Join us for the 2014 Cognitive Neuroscience Society annual meeting, April 5-8, 2014, at the Marriott Copley Place Hotel in downtown Boston. This year's meeting will include 50 scientific talks and 1000+ posters on the latest cognitive neuroscience research. Keynote speakers will include:

  • Suzanne Corkin, MIT, who will give a talk, open to the general public, about working for 50 years with Henry Gustave Molaison, a patient whose surgery to alleviate severe epileptic seizures resulted in amnesia, with him unable to create new memories
  • Marlene Behrmann, Carnegie Mellon University, will present a new model for looking at visual recognition - showing that recognizing words and faces uses distributed and overlapping circuits in both brain hemispheres

Other featured speakers include the George A. Miller Award and Distinguished Career Contributions Award winners:

  • Jon Kaas, Vanderbilt University, who has pioneered mapping of the cerebral cortex in primates
  • Marsel Mesulam, Northwestern University, whose research on primary progressive aphasia is offering new insights into the language network

Featured symposia include:

  • Developmental cognitive neuroscience, chaired by Silvia Bunge, UC Berkeley
  • Neural basis of conscious experience, chaired by Wolf Singer, Max Planck Institute for Brain Research
  • Inhibitory control of behavior and cognition, chaired by Yuko Munakata, University of Colorado Boulder

Registered members of the press will have complimentary access to scientific talks, posters, and receptions.

To qualify as a member of the press, please be prepared to provide press credentials in the form of one of the following: a business card from a news media outlet, a membership card for a journalistic professional society (e.g. NASW), letter from an editor of a news media outlet to show that you are on assignment, or recent clips related to cognitive neuroscience.
