Symposium "Metacognition night and day: lucid dreaming, mind wandering and mindfulness"

Nijmegen, Netherlands

Event access: Public

In cooperation with Donders Sleep & Memory Lab, Martin Dresler (Cognitive Neuroscience) organises a symposium on the subject of metacognition. This symposium aims to elucidate metacognitive processing during different states of mind: lucid dreaming, mind wandering and mindfulness. In contrast to metacognitive impairments experienced during normal dreaming, the rare phenomenon of lucid dreaming allows for full metacognitive capacity during ongoing sleep. Also mind wandering – or daydreaming – during wakefulness is characterized by strong metacognitive fluctuations, whereas states of mindfulness involve strong metacognitive features.

International experts on lucid dreaming, mind wandering and mindfulness will shed light on each of these phenomena, their psychological and neurobiological mechanisms, and explore their commonalities and mutual relationships.

Participation is free, but please register via email: meta@donders.institute

    • Workshop „Künstler*innen über Kunst“ ('artists on art')

      Talking about art: For some artists, the linguistic construction of an artistic programme or an artistic position is an inherent part of their work. Others see it as a challenging communicative task to speak and write about their own art in professional contexts or in front of a critical audience. In addition to individual differences, there are also differences specific to art forms and media.

      The aim of this interdisciplinary workshop organised by the Working Group Language is to shed light on the broad field of artistic communication.

    • Interdisciplinary workshop "language use in science and humanities"

      In this workshop we want to try a little experiment “on our own” and compare scientific texts from different subjects to see how they use language to present scientific results. We are not concerned with an exact linguistic description of individual phenomena, but rather with our spontaneous impressions: How do texts from other disciplines affect us, which stylistic features surprise or irritate us, what seems familiar to us? What linguistic means do the articles use to present their problem/question? What is considered as 'fact' in each case? How is the argumentation made?
