The workshop features 26 leaders of attention-learning research presenting studies of humans (infants, children, and adults) and animals, utilizing methods including eye-tracking, EEG, MEG, fNIRS, fMRI, and single-cell recording. Abstracts and videos are available here.
Some of the presentations integrate complementary studies using computational models to further refine theories of attention–learning interactions in development. Each section features speakers from different fields asking similar questions, as well as eminent professors leading discussions to foster cross-talk among the participating scientists.
The discussants make explicit the common themes and questions across disciplines, and the potential of interdisciplinary collaborations to address these questions. Further discussions are encouraged among the speakers and moderators via organized meals and breaks.
