Brain imaging in the Human Sciences 2021


Date: 11 March 2021, 8.00 AM - 11 March 2021, 6.00 PM
Venue: Aula Magna, Stockholm University

Join a conference created to inform and excite researchers within the human sciences about the opportunities that brain imaging methods can provide. We invite you to be inspired by this new frontier research field the 11th of March 2021. It will be hosted by Stockhom University Brain Imaging Centre (SUBIC)

Brain imaging methods can provide unique complementary knowledge that other methods cannot; namely, insights into what cognitive/perceptual/emotional mechanisms might produce the outcome demonstrated by common behavioral methods.

The main aim of this conference is to provide examples of cutting edge brain imaging research in multiple fields exploring field-essential questions. Importantly, the conference is aimed towards being useful both for researchers with large, and for those without any, experience with brain imaging methods. 


Registration is to be announced, keep informed at, Twitter: @SUBIC_Center or register here to receive e-mails from us.
