The 4th Workshop on

*/"Cognitive neuroscience of auditory and cross-modal perception"/*

3 - 5 June 2019

Kosice, Slovakia



·This workshop will include research talks (and introductory lectures) 
on a range of topics related to the *neural processes of auditory, 
visual and cross-modal perception*.

·The main focus of this year’s workshop will be on *adaptation, learning 
and training in spatial perception and cognition*.

·The talks will illustrate the *multidisciplinary character of cognitive 
neuroscience research*, covering behavioral, neuroimaging, and modeling 
approaches, as well as applications of the research in auditory 
prosthetic devices.

·The workshop targets *early-stage and advanced students and young 
researchers*. It will provide ample opportunities for direct 
interactions between the lecturers and the attendees.

The workshop will follow-up on our previous workshops organized in 2014, 
2015 and 2017 <http://pcl.upjs.sk/workshop>.


1/2-day sessions, including invited talks, contributed talks, and 
posters, focusing on the topics of *Adaptation*,*Learning and training*, 
*Auditory and cross-modal perception (general)*, as well *vision and 
other topics in computational and cognitive neuroscience*. 
Non-scientific program (outings to tourist destinations near Kosice) 
will take place on the day before and day after the workshop.
