Causation & Computation in Neuroscience

Second Workshop "Causation and Computation in Cognitive Neuroscience".

The second workshop of our project took place on 14th and 15th of July in Köln.

The workshop 'Causation, Mechanisms, Levels' thematically is located in the recent discussions about explanations in the lifesciences and their ontological implications.

The first day (July, 14th) will mostly concentrate on procedures in the generation of lifescientific (especially neuroscientific) explanations. In recent years, these scientific procedures were questioned more and more concerning their explanatory value.

The second day (July, 15th) will place special focus on questions about the ontological implications of lifescientific explanations, mainly interested in the metaphysics of causal and constitutive relations.
