7th International Symposium on Motivational and Cognitive Control

7th International Symposium on Motivational and Cognitive Control (MCC 2019)

Organizers: Claudia Danielmeier, Tanja Endrass, Markus Ullsperger, Adrian Fischer, Hans Kirschner, Julia Rogge
Speaker gender ratio: 9 Women : 16 Men (36%)
Estimated* base rate of women in the field: 47%

*Method of estimation: We searched NIH RePORTER with keyword motivation OR “cognitive control” and then counted the ratio of women among the unique researchers in all 99 pages of results using our python script. We left 206 names unclassified, the base rate therefore could range from 43%-51%.

Neuronal Oscillations: Mechanisms, Computational Properties and Functionality

Organizers: Horacio Rotstein, Adrien Peyrache, Vassilis Cutsuridis
Speaker gender ratio: 2 women : 11 men (15%)
Estimated* base rate of women in the field: 30%

*Method of estimation: We searched NIH RePORTER with keyword oscillations AND (neuro OR brain) and then counted the ratio of women among the unique researchers in all 10 pages of results using our python script.
