Monthly Lab Seminar in Collaboration with RSU will take place from November 2021 to May 2022. These webinars are organised for doctoral students, researchers and lecturers representing various professional fields, from medical and computer sciences to social sciences and humanities.


  • Spatial perception and spatial cognitive processes, their impact on neural and other processes
  • Processing emotions
  • Visual perception and its relation to other senses
  • Perception of medical images
  • Cross-modal perception (sight, smell, taste, touch, hearing and their connections)
  • Integrative analysis of neural and cognitive processes
  • Mathematical and logical modelling of cognitive processes

The webinar cycle is implemented by RSU in cooperation with the University of Latvia (Laboratory for Perceptual and Cognitive Systems at the Faculty of Computing).
