Expanding Opportunities for Cognitive Neuroscience

Cognitive Neuroscience Society

Join us in San Francisco to explore the nature of how we think!

Press registration is now open for the Cognitive Neuroscience Society annual conference, March 23-26, 2019, in San Francisco, CA, at the Hyatt Regency. Get great story ideas and connect with more than 1,500 neuroscientists, presenting some of the latest research on neuroimaging, memory, language, aging, exercise and learning.

Highlights will include:

  • Keynote address by Matthew Walker (University of California, Berkeley): A lecture open and free to the public on "Why Sleep?" will describe not only the good things that happen when you get sleep, but the alarmingly bad things that happen when you don't get enough.

Speakers include: Lila Davachi (Columbia University), Jennifer Groh (Duke University), Catherine Hartley (New York University); and Sharon L. Thompson-Schill (University of Pennsylvania).

  • Symposia on the effects of exercise, mental models of time, the neuroscience of social connectedness, and the latest on neuroimaging and big data

  • Award lectures by Earl Miller (MIT) on working memory; Daniel L. Schacter (Harvard University) on memory and imagination; on the balance between nature and nurture in how the brain represents objects; Muireann Irish (The University of Sydney) on new work on dementia; and Michael W.
