Co-sponsored by Penn’s Center for Curiosity and the Department of Bioengineering, “The Network Neuroscience of Curiosity” event will explore the promise of network neuroscience for understanding perhaps the most basic function of the human mind: curiosity. Drawing on expertise in neuroscience, complex systems, psychology, and philosophy, speakers will investigate the cognitive architecture of curiosity by mobilizing theoretical, behavioral, biological, and computational models.
Speakers will include Dr. Danielle Bassett, Eduardo D. Glandt Faculty Fellow and Associate Professor of Bioengineering and Electrical and Systems Engineering (University of Pennsylvania), Dr. David Danks, L. L. Thurstone Professor of Philosophy and Psychology (Carnegie Mellon University), Dr. Jacqueline Gottlieb, Professor of Neuroscience (Columbia University), and Dr. Celeste Kidd, Assistant Professor of Brain and Cognitive Sciences (University of Rochester).
This symposium is scheduled for November 17th, from 12:30-5:00, in the D26 Caster Building, at the University of Pennsylvania. The event is free and open to the public. For more information, please contact Perry Zurn (firstname.lastname@example.org).
