Symposium on Event Predictive Cognition

AbstractThis symposium on Event-Predictive Cognition (EPCog) will scrutinize the apparent strong linkage between events and predictions. Events, characterized as “a segment of time at a given location that is conceived by an observer to have a beginning and an end” (p.3, Zacks & Tversky, 2001), seem to be predictively encoded in our minds, linking and temporarily binding the essential aspects that constitute an event. However, in different disciplines the concept of an event as well as of predictions and predictive encodings has been treated from different perspectives and by means of different paradigms.
