I hosted a mini-conference here at CSU in June (June 18 & 19) called “Perceptual and Cognitive Illusions: Quirks of our Everyday Experience” at which about 60 people attended on each day. Cognitive psychologists traveled from all over the world to attend and present at this conference, and some members of the local public also attended. https://northfortynews.com/a-unique-summer-festival-in-fort-collins/
Also in June, Carol Seger and I participated, along with New York composer and pianist Bruce Adolphe, in a public event on the cognitive and neural bases of music processing. The event was called “That Sounds Familiar.”
