  • The AMiD Workshop

    The AMiD Workshop

    The AMiD Workshop aims to discuss new insights into the development of attention and memory during childhood and adolescence from a neurocognitive perspective. We will present you with talks and discussions by internationally renowned experts in the field (please see below).

    The workshop reflects a variety of methods suitable for developmental neurocognitive approaches (e.g. EEG, fMRI, NIRS, Pupillometry).

    Young researchers are invited to present their latest research on attention and memory development in a data blitz and poster session with ample opportunity to discuss and talk about the work that is currently being done.


    The Neurocognitive Development Team

    The Workshop is funded by the DFG (WE5026/1-2).

  • Data Blitz and Poster session

    Data Blitz and Poster session

    • Data Blitz are short talks of about 5 minutes introducing your current research on attention or memory development or on neurocognitive methods.
    • Posters can be presented during a separate poster session.
    • Data Blitz and Poster presentation can also be combined. Introduce your current data shortly in the Data Blitz Session and discuss results in detail in the following poster session.
    • Abstracts have to be written in English (max. 3000 characters) and submitted until August 15 via the registration link.
