The human brain fascinates scientists and humanists alike. Neuroscientific perspectives from such diverse disciplines foster our understanding of unique human capacities and traits. The workshop gives insights from neuroimaging, computational modeling, brain-computer interfacing, brain stimulation, and intracranial recording. We will meet with experts of in vitro and in vivo histology, and optogenetics. And we will learn from songbirds, and from the brains evolution. Crossing boundaries is a balance act, and a way to still the desire for scrutinizing the neural control of speech.
