Embodied Cognition Seminar Series
Addressing internal and external factors that play a role in the development of cognitive capacities.
The Fall 2023 Cognitive Science Seminar is on Embodied Cognition. Dr. Shaun Gallagher, Lillian and Morrie Moss Chair of Excellence in Philosophy, will lead this seminar series. This semester’s Cognitive Science Seminar is presented by the Institute and Intelligent Systems in conjunction with the Lillian and Morrie Moss Chair of Excellence in Philosophy. This seminar series will bring in stellar external speakers to participate, and nine of the twelve speakers will be coming to Memphis to speak in-person.
