The International Symposium on Cognition and Neuroscience aims to provide an international forum on the latest advances in cognitive neuroscience. The symposium focuses on the cognitive neuroscience of language, culture, aging, and cognition.

The main form of the symposium will be invited speeches by leading scientists in the field and oral presentations by local researchers. Discussions on how to facilitate and further the cognitive neuroscience research in the Asia-Pacific region, including Singapore and nearby regions will also be a feature of the symposium.
