7th International Symposium on Motivational and Cognitive Control (MCC 2019)


MCC is an interdisciplinary meeting fostering scientific exchange of experts and young researchers on the neuronal and computational mechanisms of cognitive control, decision making, and motivation.

This meeting will be the 7th in a series of highly successful meetings that began with a meeting in Jena organized by Michael Coles and Wolfgang Miltner in 2000 and continued with meetings in Dortmund (Michael Falkenstein and Markus Ullsperger), Amsterdam (Sander Nieuwenhuis, Rogier Mars and Richard Ridderinkhof), Oxford (Rogier Mars, Jerome Sallet, MaryAnn Noonan), Paris (Sebastien Bouret, Mark Laubach, Jerome Sallet), and St Andrews (Martin O’Neill, Redmond O’Connell, Jerome Sallet, Steve Kennerley, Verity Brown).

The main goal of the present meeting is to bring together research fields and methodological approaches ranging from cognitive and systems neuroscience, experimental psychology, neuroeconomics, and computational modeling in humans, non-human primates and rodents. Bringing together this diverse group of researchers in an informal but science-focused atmosphere will allow them to discuss current opinions and novel methodological approaches in the field. Previous meetings have shown that this format can lead to highly productive collaborations.
