Summer School 2018 | Perspectives in Neuroaesthetics

Date: 24th - 28th September 2018

Place: Longon UK

September 24th–28th, 2018


The Vienna Doctoral School in Cognition, Behaviour and Neuroscience is organizing a Summer School on Perspectives in Neuroaesthetics in London, UK. We will visit four institutions across cognitive sciences that are engaged with different aspects of Neuroaesthetics. Neuroasthetics is a growing field concerned with the mechanisms and neuronal foundations of our aesthetic sense. The goal of this summer school is to acquire a comprehensive and differentiated insight into this hot topic. On each day, there will be lectures, hands-on sessions, and the possibility for engaging discussions with the researchers on-site.

Tuesday | Welcome Laboratory of Neurobiology, UCL
Wednesday | Music, Mind, Brain Lab, Goldsmiths, University of London 
Thursday | Cognitive Neuroscience Research Unit, City, University of London
