The cognitive neurosciences and in particular the recent advances in brain imaging have created a pronounced interest in the general public but also in adjacent scientific disciplines. It is obvious that Educational Sciences would be able to profit from findings in the neuroscience sector.
However, progress in integrating neuroscience results into educational science is made difficult or impossible by differences in methods, levels of analysis, research goals, and philosophy. The workshop at the HWK tries to bridge that gap and aims to foster the research interests of young scientists.
Keynote lectures by internationally acknowledged speakers as well as specialized talks and discussions will allow for both disciplinary and interdisciplinary scientific exchange. Prof. Elsbeth Stern (ETH Zurich), Prof. Eveline Crone (University of Leiden), Prof. Niels Taatgen (University of Groningen), and Prof. Claudia von Aufschnaiter (Justus-Liebig-University Gießen) will be amongst the invited speakers of the workshop.
The meeting is organized by experts from different disciplines at the universities of Oldenburg and Kiel: Prof. Christiane Thiel and Jale Özyurt (Psychology, Oldenburg), Prof. Barbara Moschner (Educational Sciences, Oldenburg), Prof. Ilka Parchmann (Science Education, Kiel), and Prof. Claus Möbus (Computational Modeling, Oldenburg). The workshop is supported by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).
Doctoral students and postdocs from the fields of neuroscience, education, science education and cognitive modelling are encouraged to apply and discuss their research in depth and in small groups with international experts from each of these fields. This could offer a unique opportunity for young scientists to find connections between their own research projects and those in related fields. The conference language will be English.
The workshop fee for participants amounts to 100,- €, which covers three nights in a hotel, daily shuttle service from the hotel to the conference site, daily lunch and dinner, snacks and drinks during the conference breaks, and workshop material. Note, that travel costs are not included in the workshop fee. PhD students who rely on financial support may apply for a grant by additionally sending a letter of motivation and details on current funding.

Before the fluid of the middle ear drains and sound waves penetrate for the first time, the inner ear cells of newborn rodents practice for their big debut. Researchers at Johns Hopkins report they have figured out the molecular chain of events that enables the cells to make “sounds” on their own, essentially “practicing” their ability to process sounds in the world around them.
The researchers, who describe their experiments in the Dec. 3 edition of the journal Cell, show how hair cells in the inner ear can be activated in the absence...
Planet Earth experienced a global climate shift in the late 1980s on an unprecedented scale, fuelled by anthropogenic warming and a volcanic eruption, according to new research published this week.
Scientists say that a major step change, or ‘regime shift’, in the Earth’s biophysical systems, from the upper atmosphere to the depths of the ocean and from...
The Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE has installed 70 photovoltaic modules on the outer façade of one of its lab buildings. The modules were...
Nerve cells cover their high energy demand with glucose and lactate. Scientists of the University of Zurich now provide new support for this. They show for the first time in the intact mouse brain evidence for an exchange of lactate between different brain cells. With this study they were able to confirm a 20-year old hypothesis.
In comparison to other organs, the human brain has the highest energy requirements. The supply of energy for nerve cells and the particular role of lactic acid...
