Conference Dinner

full SOLD OUT
  • Saturday 7 May
  • Venue: Carmen de los Martires in the Alhambra Gardens
  • Time: From 21:00 h.
  • Price: 49 € per person.

Buses for Conference Dinner will depart at 20:30 from Congress Venue (Palacio de Congresos de Granada)

Carmen de los Mártires build on the XIX Century in the city of Granada. It is a Palace surrounded by gardens in several levels: a French baroque garden, with a small pond with a Statue of God Neptune in the centre, surrounded by other statues that represent the four seasons, and English style garden, the garden of the Palm trees that has a 3-floor fountain and irregular squared shaped bushes. The pond that intends to look like a small lake, thought to invite ducks and swans to swim in it. The false medieval ruins, and the Nazari patio, that was created in 1944, that try to copy all the typical elements of a Nazari garden, and the labyrinth-forest that are used to connect one garden with the other.

Abstract

The Psychology of Scarcity and Its Consequences

This talk will review research around the psychology that emerges in contexts of scarcity, and the decisions — occasionally commendable, often problematic — that ensue.  Some implications for thinking about scarcity (esp. poverty) and for policy will be considered.

Abstract

Two languages in mind:  Bilingualism as a lens to cognition

More people in the world are bilingual than monolingual. Yet, until recently, bilingualism was considered to be a complicating factor for modeling language processing, language learning, and the cognitive resources that support them. In the past two decades, there has been an upsurge of research on the consequences of bilingual language experience for cognition and the brain. In this talk, I present evidence that suggests that the interactions that arise when two languages are in play reveal mechanisms of cognitive control that may be difficult or impossible to examine in monolingual speakers. In this sense, bilingualism becomes a lens to cognition.

Abstract

MaGuire_EleanorThe what, where, when, why and how of memory

Memory is undeniably central to cognition. And yet, there is still a pervasive tendency to examine memory in isolation. By considering why memory exists, what it is for, how and where memories are built and if and when they change over time, I will argue that memory can only be properly understood if considered in the context of cognition as a whole. I will examine cognitive, neuropsychological and brain imaging data to explore this assertion.

Abstract

Duncan_JohnFrontoparietal control systems in the assembly of cognitive episodes

All human cognition is controlled in a series of attentional episodes, breaking complex problems into simpler, more solvable sub-problems. In human fMRI studies, a common or multiple-demand (MD) pattern of frontal and parietal activity is associated with diverse cognitive demands, and with standard tests of fluid intelligence. Based on behavioural, neuropsychological, fMRI and single unit data, I suggest that the core function of MD cortex is to control complex cognition in a structured sequence of attentional episodes. At the same time, I consider the complementary control functions of MD and “default mode” networks
