CNS 2024 Press Room

Join us in Toronto to explore the nature of how we think!

Press registration is now open for the Cognitive Neuroscience Society annual conference, April 13-16, 2023, in Toronto, Canada, at the Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel. Get great story ideas and connect with hundreds of neuroscientists, presenting some of the latest research on memory, language, aging, neurotechnology, and learning.

Press registration is now open.

Please read our credential policy and email Lisa Munoz at to register.

Highlights will include:

  • Keynote address by Sheena Josselyn (Hospital for Sick Children and The University of Toronto): A lecture on research to understand “engrams,” long-lasting physical brain changes that are thought to encode memories.
  • Award lectures by Kia Nobre (Yale University) on how focus guides behavior across time scales; Lynn Nadel (University of Arizona) on how the hippocampus creates “cognitive maps” that enable humans to take actions even when distanced by time or space; Ella Striem-Amit (Georgetown University) on insights from studying people with congenital sensorimotor deprivation; and Peter Kok (University College London) on the neural circuit underlying subjective perception.
  • Symposia about the neurocognitive mechanisms of mindfulness, neural markers for Autism Spectrum Disorder, the cognitive neuroscience of dreaming, and more.
  • More than 1,000 posters and 50 talks covering the latest neuroscience research on memory, attention, decision-making, language, music, and more.
