Call for papers: Effects of Neuroscience Explanations

Cognitive Research: Principles and Implications (CR:PI) is pleased to invite you to submit to our new thematic series on the effects of neuroscience explanations. 

Guest Editors: Woo-kyoung Ahn and Deena Weisberg 

As neuroscience progresses, laypeople are increasingly exposed to neuroscience explanations for human behaviors. The purpose of this collection of papers is to examine how neuroscience explanations for human behaviors affect our judgments, inferences, and cognition in general, and/or what might be the underlying mechanisms for such effects. Papers may be empirical studies on effects of neuroscience explanations; theoretical or tutorial reviews of papers on this topic; or theoretical papers on why neuroscience explanations may affect our cognition in certain ways.

Submission information 

Thematic series deadline: December 31, 2017
