Talk Series: Neurocognition & Work

After an extended summer break, we are finally relaunching our colloquium talk series. What started as an adaption to the circumstances during the pandemic, has turned out to be an excellent opportunity to engage in scientific exchange with scientist from all over the world. Hence, the Department of Ergonomics will continue to host a talk series. Interested guests are welcome to join. The lectures take place online via Zoom or/and on site at IfADo in Dortmund.

Representing the variety of research topics investigated in our department, the invited talks will range from basic research on attention, working memory or perception to more applied topics related to cognitive neuro-ergonomics or human machine-interaction. Please see details on the upcoming talks and topics below. Talks will be approximately 45 minutes, followed by a discussion.

When: Tuesdays, 4 pm CET

If you want to attend the online talks, please sign-up for the mailing list to get the Zoom invites.
