1st Neuroscience Meetup

Halbgasse 7 , 1070 Wien


Professor Claus Lamm, biological psychologist

Empathy is a crucial social skill that allows us to connect to and understand others and their emotions. In my talk, I will highlight recent findings regarding its neural mechanisms, focusing on research in humans but also in rats, ravens, and dogs.

Doctor Christopher Frauenberger, interaction design researcher

Studying people's experiences with technology largely depends on our empathic understanding. However, for user groups with which we have less overlap in terms of lifeworlds, these presumed empathic understandings become unfounded presumptions. I speak about our work with autistic children and how we designed and evaluated technologies with them, that were meaningful to them on their own terms. While I am not arguing against empathy, I would like to argue for increased participation and empowerment in creating technologies and doing science more generally.
