202404.26 21st Human Neuroscience Seminar: Emotion, Music, Language, and Social Cognitive Neuroscience Posted in EVENT

During the 21st Human Brain Science Seminar, we had the pleasure of hosting Dr. Francesca M.M. Citron from Lancaster University, UK. The seminar was conducted on the theme of "Social Cognitive Neuroscience of Emotion, Music, and Language." We are particularly grateful for Dr. Citron’s excellent talk, which greatly enriched our understanding. Two students from our lab presented their latest fMRI experimental results on the cognition of music and the relationship between emotion and language. The seminar featured lively discussions on music, emotions, language, and culture, making it an exceptionally stimulating event. (Jeong)
