[AUDITORY] Kosice Neuroscience Workshop, 29 – 31 May



The 3rd Workshop on

"Cognitive neuroscience of auditory and cross-modal perception"

29 - 31 May 2017

Kosice, Slovakia




·         This workshop will include research talks (and introductory lectures) on a range of topics related to the neural processes of auditory, visual and cross-modal perception.

·         The main focus of this year's workshop will be on adaptation, learning and training in hearing, vision and other perceptual and cognitive brain functions.

·         The talks will illustrate the multidisciplinary character of cognitive neuroscience research, covering behavioral, neuroimaging, and modeling approaches, as well as applications of the research in auditory prosthetic devices.

·         The workshop targets early-stage and advanced students and young researchers. It will provide ample opportunities for direct interactions between the lecturers and the attendees.


The workshop will follow-up on previous two workshops organized in 2014 and 2015.



1/2-day sessions, including invited talks, contributed talks, and posters, focusing on the topics of Adaptation, Learning and training, Auditory and cross-modal perception (general), and Vision and other topics in computational and cognitive neuroscience. Non-scientific program (outings to tourist destinations near Kosice) will take place on the day before and day after the workshop.
