Inter-ACT: A workshop on action and communication bridging psycholinguistics and social neuroscience

Salle de conférences 5 avenue Pasteur, Aix-en-Provence

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 […]

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

Salle des voûtes, St Charles 3 place Victor Hugo, Marseille

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, […]

Prospects for Collaborative Research between Latin Palaeography, Cognitive Psychology and the Neurosciences

Salle de conférences 5 avenue Pasteur, Aix-en-Provence

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 […]

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

Amphi MASSIANI 3 place Victor Hugo, Marseille

"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 […]

Using Data Science to Study Children’s Cognitive Development

Salle des voûtes, St Charles 3 place Victor Hugo, Marseille

"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 […]

Cerebral Processing of Voice Information: From Monkeys to Deep Learning

Salle des voûtes, St Charles 3 place Victor Hugo, Marseille

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 […]
