“Cognition and Consciousness” Retecog Summer School 2012

The Retecog Network fosters interdisciplinary collaboration to promote the advancement of Cognitive Science in Spain. This summer school aims to offer an overview of research in Cognitive Science through the choice of an area of research which provides a clear demonstration of the potential benefits of multidisciplinary cross-fertilization. It is addressed to graduate students, or recent doctors, interested in gaining a broader view of their research topic, and benefit from interdisciplinary collaboration. Participants are expected to present their current projects, either as poster or oral presentation, and will be offered feedback and further support.
