Brain Representations of Basic Physics Concepts

Marcel Adam Just
Director, Center for Cognitive Brain Imaging, Carnegie Mellon University

Abstract: The findings concerning physics concepts build on the remarkable new ability to determine the neural signature (or activation pattern) corresponding to an individual concept using fMRI brain imaging. Moreover, the neural signatures can be decomposed into meaningful underlying dimensions, identifying the individual, interpretable components of the neural representation of a concept. The investigation of physics concepts representations reveals how relatively recent physics concepts (formalized only in the last few centuries) are stored in the millenia-old information system of the human brain.

Professional Skills Workshop for Women Physicists

Tuesday, October 24, 1:00 p.m - 8:00 p.m.

Professional Skills Development Workshops are designed to provide women physicists with professional training in effective negotiation and communication skills, as well as a special opportunity for networking. Funding for an extra hotel night is available to all participants.

Participation is open to female postdocs and early career female physicists. Workshops are conducted by professional facilitators and are limited for optimal participation.

The registration deadline is September 22. If you have already registered for DNP17 and would like to add the Professional Skills Development Workshop to your registration, please send an email to
