Dear Administrators of the Cognitive Science Society Mailing List,

I am writing on behalf of my collaborator, Dr. Edouard Machery, and myself to request that the below Call for Participants be shared on the Cognitive Science Society mailing list (starting below and in between *****).

I am happy to answer questions about the survey and/or provide additional information.

Thank you for your time.




Call for Participants: Survey on The Concept of Representation in the Mind Sciences

I am Dr. Edouard Machery, Distinguished Professor in the Department of History and Philosophy of Science at the University of Pittsburgh (www.edouardmachery.com). I would like to you to participate in a 15-minute research study about the meaning of the notion of representation.

If you decide to participate in this study, you will be presented with four short scenarios describing a neuroscientific experiment and asked a few questions about each. You will also be asked a few general questions and a few demographic questions. The survey is entirely anonymous. There is no risk associated with participating to this study. Although we do not currently have plans to share the data, should we do so in the future, your data will be shared in an anonymous manner. Also, your data will anonymous in any related publications or presentations. Again, participation is completely voluntary. You can choose to be in the study or not. You are also free to withdraw from the study once you begin. However, if you withdraw, any responses you provided will potentially be used.

Here is the link to the survey to please fill out as soon as possible, but no later than November 15, 2020:
