We are excited to meet you again in the second event of Open Cognition, which we organize to present the importance of language-thought interaction! This month, we hosted Dr. Ercenur Ünal from Özyeğin University Department of Psychology. In her speech titled "Language and Thought", Ercenur Ünal explained to what extent our native tongue determines our concepts, perceptions, and cognitive processes that form these thoughts while expressing our thoughts through language in our daily communication. In our face-to-face event, we brought together participants from different fields of study and of all ages. See you in a new Open Cognition!
