Symposium "Metacognition night and day: lucid dreaming, mind wandering and mindfulness"
- Starts on
- Ends on
Event access: Public
In cooperation with Donders Sleep & Memory Lab, Martin Dresler (Cognitive Neuroscience) organises a symposium on the subject of metacognition. This symposium aims to elucidate metacognitive processing during different states of mind: lucid dreaming, mind wandering and mindfulness. In contrast to metacognitive impairments experienced during normal dreaming, the rare phenomenon of lucid dreaming allows for full metacognitive capacity during ongoing sleep. Also mind wandering – or daydreaming – during wakefulness is characterized by strong metacognitive fluctuations, whereas states of mindfulness involve strong metacognitive features.
International experts on lucid dreaming, mind wandering and mindfulness will shed light on each of these phenomena, their psychological and neurobiological mechanisms, and explore their commonalities and mutual relationships.
