This workshop seeks to foster fruitful interactions between philosophers and cognitive scientists around topics and questions of mutual interest. The workshop will explore the interactions (both negative and positive) between mind wandering and cognitive control. This is an area that requires further research, both conceptual and empirical, in order to better understand phenomena like creativity, social cognition, and moral emotions.

Paola Agudelo Orjuela (Externado U.): "Interactions between emotional processing and cognitive control: An ERP study"
