Methods of an Embodied Mind

Science & Society Session at ENCODS 2018

How does the mind manifest itself through the body? How can we manipulate the mind through physical actions? On the occasion of the neuroscientific conference ENCODS 2018, a Science & Society Session entitled “Methods of an Embodied Mind” will investigate the theme of embodied cognition as it relates to virtual reality, dance, mental illness and music.

Curated and moderated by Lindsay Petley-Ragan, the session will include a discussion with Kalina Bertin (Montreal, CAN), director of ManicVR, a new virtual reality experience that simulates the development of bipolar disorder; Carolien Hermans (Utrecht, NL), a dancer investigating educational dance models for children with special needs; and Dr. Luc Nijs (Ghent, BEL), a musician researching the musician-instrument relationship as it relates to body movement.

ENCODS 2018

The neuroscientific conference ENCODS 2018 presents the Science & Society Session with support of the Schering Stiftung. As modern science is having a growing impact on our everyday life, ENCODS 2018 strives to provide participants with examples of how their scientific research can be used outside the lab. With the goal of inspiring scientists to reflect on how their own research can be incorporated into society, the Science & Society Session will focus on sociological, philosophical and artistic applications of neuroscience.

ENCODS 2018 is a pioneer conference which creates a space for young doctoral researchers to engage with the use of technologies in neuroscience. The invited leading experts shine light on the possibilities that novel methods open for neuroscientific research.
