MET CONFERENCE: Neuroscience of Theater Therapy


Neuroscience of Theater Therapy

28-30 August 2020 | National University of Theater and Film, CINETic Center, Bucharest

Due to travel restrictions and health concerns related to COVID-19 outbreak, we are re-considering the date and medium for the conference. We will post an update as soon as we reach a decision.

Neuroscientists, psychologists, and artists will come together to share novel and exciting research results and practices. We aim to stimulate a common discourse to unite these three fields and to foster multidisciplinary collaborations. The event will mark the conclusion of the MET project at CINETic, which aimed to define key physiological and biochemical bases of the behavioral changes induced by theater therapy, with a focus on the oxytocin hormone. Topics related to the action of oxytocin and social interactions in humans and/or animal models will be especially relevant for the neuroscience aspect of the conference. Topics related to theater, drama or art therapy will be of particular interest for psychologists and artists.

Open call for presentations and poster sessions will be launched around March 15th, 2020.
