Colloquium series Neurocognition & Work goes online!

Written by Laura-Isabelle Klatt

As the pandemic continues to affect many aspects of both working and private life, we are seeking new possibilities to still allow for scientific discourse. Thus, we are happy to announce that we are moving our department’s colloquium series online. Following the overarching theme “Neurocognition & Work” and given the diverse interests of our team members, we will feature researchers from various backgrounds, covering both basic as well as applied research. To just drop a few keywords, if selective attention, (working) memory, human-machine interaction, cognitive ergonomics or mobile EEG sound interesting to you, we’ll sure have some exciting guests for you!

Communication in times of COVID-19

Probably for another couple of months, conferences as well as larger meetings with colleagues will be impossible due to travel and assembly restrictions. Therefore we decided to share a new channel of communication with our partners,  friends and everyone who is interested in ergonomics research. Hopefully on a regular basis, news from our department will be presented in this blog. We will inform you about our projects, plans and publications. This cannot replace conferences or meetings but it will be a possibility to stay in touch.
