9.20 Introduction to the Workshop 9.30 Dr. Anna K. Kuhlen (Institute for Psychology, Humboldt University of Berlin, Germany) Neuro-cognitive studies on language production in shared task settings Typically, people speak in the context of social interaction. Yet, surprisingly little is known about how the neuro-cognitive processes of language production are shaped by social interaction. I will present experiments that investigate language production in settings in which two speakers jointly name pictures and take turns speaking and listening. Starting point are…

Brains in Harmony: the role of brain-to-brain synchrony in naturalistic social interactions

Brains in Harmony: the role of brain-to-brain synchrony in naturalistic social interactions Neuroscience research has produced tremendous insight into how the human brain supports dynamic social interactions. Still, laboratory-generated findings do not always straightforwardly generalize to real-world environments. To fill this gap, I collaborate with scientists, artists, and educators to take neuroscience out of the laboratory, into schools, museums, and underserved neighborhoods. We consistently find a relationship between brain-to-brain synchrony and successful social interaction. For example, empathy, joint action, and social motivation predicts synchrony…

Prospects for Collaborative Research between Latin Palaeography, Cognitive Psychology and the Neurosciences Twenty years ago, Brian Stock, the distinguished Canadian historian of medieval literature and philosophy, published Augustine the Reader, a seminal resource for examining the patristic vocabulary for reading in the fifth century C.E.  The Latin verbs videre and inspicere came to be closely associated with, and in some instances synonyms for the act of reading.  A survey of surviving manuscripts of the fifth and sixth century reveals remarkable…

Musicians at the cocktail party: Neural correlates of bottom-up and top down mechanisms

"Musicians at the cocktail party: Neural correlates of bottom-up and top down mechanisms" Robert Zatorre Montreal Neurological Institute McGill University Segregating sound mixtures makes demands on multiple cognitive and neural mechanisms that musical training may enhance or exploit. In a series of studies we have documented the music-related enhancement behaviorally in the context of speech in noise, and also in a selective attention context with competing speech streams. Using functional MRI, we observed that musicians' enhanced speech-in-noise perception was associated…

Using Data Science to Study Children’s Cognitive Development

"Using Data Science to Study Children's Cognitive Development" Abdellah Fourtassi Following the seminal work of Piaget, the traditional approach in cognitive development has focused on studying the structure of children’s knowledge in controlled situations (e.g., laboratory experiments). While this approach allows for precise inference about how children behave in certain tasks, it cannot provide an understanding of the social context within which knowledge emerges. In fact, it has been known, at least since Vygotsky, that children acquire new skills and…

What we learn and when we learn it: the interaction of maturation and experience in music and language

What we learn and when we learn it: the interaction of maturation and experience in music and language Virginia Penhune Department of Psychology, Concordia University Laboratory for Motor Control and Neural Plasticity https://www.concordia.ca/artsci/psychology/research/penhune-lab.html The impact of training or experience is not the same at all points in development. Children who learn to play a musical instrument or speak a second language early in life are often more proficient as adults. In the domain of music, a wealth of anecdotal evidence…

Cerebral Processing of Voice Information: From Monkeys to Deep Learning

Pascal Belin, Institut de Neurosciences de La Timone, CNRS & Aix-Marseille Université, France --------------------------- How do we extract and process the treasure-trove of information in voices? Experiments involving techniques ranging from monkey neuroimaging to deep learning provide an increasingly detailed picture of the ‘vocal brain’ and its evolution in primates. Results suggest an organization in several ‘voice patches’ analogous to that of the face patch system.
