CitSotMaB2016: CAUSALITY IN THE SCIENCES OF THE MIND AND BRAIN

June 27-29th 2016, Aarhus University, Denmark

This conference in the Causality in the Sciences (CitS) series will focus on causality in the sciences of the mind and brain. Included in these sciences are psychology, psychiatry, neuroscience and cognitive neuroscience. The questions that this conference will address include: What characterizes the notion of causation in the sciences of the mind and brain? Are different notions required for different sciences or experimental methods? Are there differences in the notions that are explicitly and implicitly assumed in the methods employed? What counts as causal evidence in these sciences? What role is played by information of interventions and physical mechanisms in identifying causal claims in the sciences of the mind and brain?
