Registration & Abstract submission

The aim of the symposium is to bring together Israeli and  German post docs and experienced PhD students in order to discuss the behavioral and neural foundations of understanding others. To achieve fruitful discussions and an inspiring atmosphere, the call explicitly addresses scientists who have a strong background in the field of social, affective or cognitive  neuroscience or psychology. Candidates from the field who develop novel paradigms, tackle theoretical challenges, or contribute new methods to examine processes related to understanding others are invited.
