ABSTRACT (maximum 750 words) DUE DATE: July 1, 2023; see below

THEMES: 1) Evolution of the brain; how evolutionary theories inform ideas about cognition and behavior. 2) Varia: philosophy of neuroscience or neurophilosophy, broadly construed.

In addition to welcoming talks on all topics in philosophy of neuroscience or neurophilosophy, at this year's meeting we also aim to bring history and philosophy of biology, philosophy of mind, and neuroscience into closer conversation. To this end, we also invite abstract submissions for talks on the topic of brain evolution. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: histories of brain evolution and cross-species comparisons; using evolutionary theory to develop tools to be used to study the brain (e.g. neuro-computational modeling); functional and structural homology of the brain; evolutionary theory as explanation in behavioral and cognitive neuroscience.

This workshop is open to historians, philosophers, and scientists working at all levels of investigation, and will continue our tradition of bringing junior and senior scholars together in conversation.

We will feature our usual events, including submitted talks, invited speakers, invited neuroscientist keynote lectures, and short "blitz" talks.
