Reading Emotions Symposium 19-20 June 2017

The symposium will address the construct of belief, and its relationship to emotion and behaviour.

We will consider the nature of human and animal belief, from an experimental, theoretical and philosophical angle.

We will examine the putative neurobiological constituents of belief, and their importance in understanding, treating and preventing pathology of thought and behaviour.

We will explore three complementary perspectives:

Descriptive - what is it to hold a belief?
Functional - what do beliefs do for us?
Mechanistic - how do beliefs emerge from cognition and brain function?
