About Conference

We extend the heartiest welcome at the 25th Cognitive Neuroscience Congress 2018 scheduled for October 11-13, 2018 at Dubai UAE, revolving around the theme “Scientific gathering to unleash the new horizons in a neurocognitive study”. This conference invites all the participants around the globe to share a platform and in order to convey their insights and recent developments in the field of Cognition and Neuroscience.

Important Dates:

Abstract Submission Opens February 10, 2018
Registration Opens March 05, 2018
On Spot Registration October 11, 2018

Benefits of Conference:

Cognitive Neuroscience Congress itself is an idiosyncratic discussion to bring forth the new approaches and also to unite recognized scholastics, concerned with neuroscience, Cognition, also in-field experts, Psychiatrists, Public well-being experts, researchers, scholarly researchers, industry specialists, researchers to trade about cutting-edge research and innovations. The point to organize this conference is to give a stage to academicians and specialists with a wide spectrum of disciplines to debate and deliberate on social change that is encompassed by innovation and technology.

Sessions/Tracks

Track 1: Cognitive Psychology

Cognitive Psychology is the scientific study of mind as an information processor. It involves the study of all the things that go on inside your brain. Knowing more about how people think and process the data not only help researchers to gain a deeper understanding of how the human brain works, but it allows psychologists to develop new ways of serving people dealing with cognitive psychological difficulties. Cognitive psychology has also improved our understanding of how people form, store, process and recall the memories. Meanwhile, the emphasis of psychology shifted away from the study of conditioned behavior and psychoanalytical notions about the study of the mind, towards the understanding of human information processing, using laboratory investigation. Cognitive approach believes that internal mental behavior can be scientifically studied using experiments. Cognitive psychology assumes that a mediation process occurs between stimulus (input) and response (output). Computer analogy is also proved to be very useful in case of cognitive psychology-the use of the computational tools for thinking how the human mind handles information is known as the computer analogy. Essentially, computer codes information, stores information, utilize the acquired information and produce an output. Such idea of using the computer as a tool was adopted by cognitive psychologists as a model of how human thoughts work.

  • Track 1-2Memory processes
  • Track 1-3Language processes
  • Track 1-4Metacognition
  • Track 1-5Abnormal psychology
  • Track 1-6Personality psychology

Track 2: Behavioral Psychology

Behavioral psychology is a systematic approach to understanding the behavior of humans and other animals. This sates that all the behaviors are either responses or reflexes to the respective stimuli in the environment, or are the result of individual’s history, especially including reinforcement and punishment. This whole together with the individual’s current state and controlling stimuli decides one’s behavior. The researchers and scientists who study behavioral psychologies are striving to understand why we behave the way we do now. Also, scientists are concerned with discovering patterns in the action and behaviors of human and animals with the hope that behavioral psychology can help us to predict how an individual will behave in a particular situation.

  • Track 2-3Genetic mechanism
  • Track 2-4Developmental mechanism
  • Track 2-5Genetic research technique
  • Track 2-6Linguistics

Track 3: Computational Neuroscience

Computational neuroscience is the study of brain function by the application of computational tools, mathematical approaches, and theories in terms of information processing of the structures that make up the nervous system. This not only includes neurology but covers several things in one umbrella like it incorporates diverse approaches from electrical engineering, computational engineering, and computer science and physics in order to understand how human’s nervous system processes information. Computational neuroscience focuses on describing fully functional and realistic neurons and neural system. Computational neuroscience also possesses potential in aiming towards questions with a wide spectrum. How do Axons develop? How dendrites form? How do synapses form? How cognition phenomenon takes place? How sensory motors act?
