We are proud to present the 4th edition of the Affect, Personality and the EmbodiedBrain“APE2023” online conference that occurred from 14th to 15th December jointly hosted through the APE Research Group at Nottingham Trent University (United Kingdom) and HNL group from Universidade Católica Portuguesa (Portugal), around our understanding of the interaction between the mind and body. This join effort emerged through our ongoing collaborations and representation at the international APE network. It showcases our strong partnership and commitment, and acts as ‘a consolidating agent’ for our joint ventures in the future. The APE network is an extended virtual meeting ground bringing scientific collaborators in the field together. If you want to join us, please get in touch through our website.
