Social interaction plays many roles in shaping our cognitive capacities in both health and disease. ECogS 2021 is a forum for advancing the scientific understanding of these roles from a diversity of perspectives.
Keynotes hailing from psychology, social cognitive neuroscience, computer science, anthropology, and philosophy of mind, experts from both experimental and theoretical disciplines, will come together to discuss a core theme: how does real-time embodied social interaction matter to the mind?
As people around the globe struggle to cope with the prolonged lockdown and social distancing measures put into place since last year, the importance of social interaction to mental wellbeing is becoming increasingly salient. In this context, the diverse approaches of participants at the conference will be a major opportunity to reflect on lessons that we can learn from these challenging times.
