A Penny for your Thoughts

25-26 September 2017 | Senate House London

Organised by Uri Hertz (London) and Simone Shamay-Tsoory (Haifa), A Penny for Your Thoughts is a workshop on social cognition, exploring how culture and values, friends and family, define who we are, and help us to make sense of the social environment. The event brings together scientists of the mind with varied approaches to the study of interactions, ranging from developmental psychology and cognitive neuroscience, to neurobiology and clinical psychology, with the goal to spark discussion and future collaborations. Sponsored by the British Council’s UK-Israel SYNERGY Programme, the event is organised by The Human Mind Project at the University of London.
