X-SPECT’s 3rd Annual Workshop

Wilding the Predictive Brain: Prediction, Culture and Context

The picture of the human mind as an embodied prediction machine is now the dominant systems-level model in cognitive neuroscience. But neural prediction never happens in a vacuum. Our predictive brains are themselves embedded in layer upon layer of bodily and worldly structure and opportunity. This year the X-SPECT workshop explores these horizons, highlighting the many ways that predictive minds interface and evolve with society, culture and technology.

Our speakers this year include: 

Andreas Roepstorff (Aarhus)

Katerina Fotopoulou (UCL)

Sarah Garfinkel (Sussex)

Jelle Bruineberg (Amsterdam)

Rosalyn Moran (Bristol)

Matthew Sims (Edinburgh)

We will also have a session for poster presentations. If you would your poster to be considered  please send an abstract (200 words approx.) with the subject line “Poster Submission”, to [email protected]. The deadline for submission is October 1st.

A full programme is available here: https://www.x-spect.org/third-project-workshop.html

Registration will be free for those with accepted posters (£5 for other attendees, paid on the day).

Those wishing to register in advance can send an email with the subject line "Workshop Registration", and their name and affiliation, to [email protected].

Hope to see many of you out this fall,

The X-SPECT Team
