Workshop - Getting it done at a non-R1: Succeeding in Cognitive Neuroscience in a Resource-Limited Environment

Saturday, April 13, 2024, 11:30 am - 12:30 pm (EDT), Ballroom West

Chair: Julian Keenan, Montclair State University

Speakers: Julian Keenan, Montclair State University, Victoria Heimer-McGinn, Ph.D., Roger Williams University, Assistant Professor of Psychology, Sukhvinder Obhi, Ph.D., McMaster University, Associate Vice President of Research

This workshop provides practical, ‘how to’ information on how to set-up, establish, and sustain a neuroscience program when resources are less than ideal. This top-heavy funding disparity limits research options for many principal investigators as well as students. Here we provide practical advice on how to succeed and flourish when resources are limited.

 

Workshop - Embracing high-dimensional data with XR-based experiments

Saturday, April 13, 2024, 11:30 am - 12:30 pm (EDT), Ballroom Center

Chair: Kyla Alsbury-Nealy, SilicoLabs

SilicoLabs’ no-code software allows researchers to quickly and easily create interactive XR experiments at a fraction of the cost of existing methods. This workshop explores how the software records behaviour in virtual environments, along with mobile EEG, body, hand, and eye-tracking. Time will be allotted for an interactive demonstration.

 

Social - CNS 2024 Welcome Reception

Saturday, April 13, 2024, 5:30 - 6:30 pm (EDT), Provincial Ballroom

Special Event - Pavlov's Dogz

Sunday, April 14, 2024, 9:00 pm (EDT), Adelaide Hall, 250 Adelaide St W Second Floor, Toronto, ON M5H 1X6, Canada

Event Info: Doors: 8:00pm; Show: 9:00pm (EST)

Pavlov's Dogz is a roaming band of neuroscientist-musicians that will rock your brain.

Please note that Adelaide Hall is not wheelchair accessible at this time due to the presence of stairs leading into the venue. We understand the importance of providing an inclusive environment and we deeply regret any limitations the building may pose. If you have any specific accessibility concerns or require assistance, please don't hesitate to contact us at accessibility@themrggroup.com and we will do our best to accommodate your needs.

DEI Workshop - Visibility and Networking: What does it mean and how do you do it?

Monday, April 15, 2024, 12:15 - 1:15 pm (EDT), Osgood Ballroom

Chair: Audrey Duarte, Ph.D, University of Texas, Austin

Speakers: Morgan Barense, Vishnu Murty and M. Natasha Rajah.

Visibility is an important part of an academic career. How can we achieve it? Panelists will discuss their experience with scientific visibility and answer all your questions about navigating this, often daunting, aspect of a career in science. The DEI committee welcomes CNS attendees at all career stages.

Workshop: Ethical, Legal and Societal Issues (ELSIs) in Cognitive Neuroscience: Anything new?

Tuesday, April 16, 2024, 12:15 - 1:15 pm (EDT), Osgood Ballroom

Chair: Martha Farah, University of Pennsylvania

You may have encountered the ELSIs of neuroscience (aka neuroethics) in the past. In this workshop the assembled group will identify recent advances in our field, from brain stimulation to image analysis, and brainstorm what new ELSIs may ensue. What’s realistic and what’s sci fi? How might these capabilities shape life going forward, from the courtroom to the battlefield?
