This conference in the Causality in the Sciences (CitS) series will focus on causality in the sciences of the mind and brain. Included in these sciences are psychology, psychiatry, neuroscience and cognitive neuroscience. The questions that this conference will address include: What characterizes the notion of causation in the sciences of the mind and brain? Are different notions required for different sciences or experimental methods? Are there differences in the notions that are explicitly and implicitly assumed in the methods employed? What counts as causal evidence in these sciences? What role is played by information of interventions and physical mechanisms in identifying causal claims in the sciences of the mind and brain?

Papers addressing these and related issues concerning the epistemology, metaphysics, methodology and semantics of causality in these sciences are invited for presentation by both philosophers and scientists. Submissions must at the same time address the issue of causality and engage with the sciences.

This conference is an event in the conference series “Causality in the Sciences”

Instructions for registration will be listed on webpage in due course.
