23 April, 2018 - Mining, social conflict and alternatives in Peru and Colombia

Time: 18:00:00 - 20:30:00

The Peru Support Group, ABColombia, Cafod and UCL Institute of the Americas invite you to this panel discussion. Large-scale mining projects are strongly backed by the Colombian and Peruvian state as a source of revenue and jobs. However, they have a long record of damaging social and environmental impacts. They harm people’s health and disrupt food production. They contribute to biodiversity loss and pollute water sources. Local communities are frequently displaced, repressed and criminalised for protesting against these projects, triggered by the lack of effective channels of social participation into decisions affecting their livelihoods. This event will explore expert analysis on the current situation of human rights defenders in Colombia and Peru in relation to mining operations, and will also discuss alternatives to mining projects. *New venue: UCL Roberts Building Lecture Theatre 106, London WC1E 7JE

25 April, 2018 - STEaPP Seminar Series - Wicked Infrastructure: Wide-ranging solution or omnipresent problem?

Time: 15:30:00 - 17:00:00

From critical to digital to green, infrastructure is arguably the most defining feature of the organisation, functioning and wellbeing of modern societies. Despite its pervasiveness infrastructure lacks general visibility and public profile. Infrastructure is valued mainly for the revenues and profits it generates, rarely just for representing an array of the most ‘complex engineering feats in world history’ or for enabling and symbolising meaningful social relations or national and cultural identity. This STEaPP Seminar will explore the impact of infrastructure’s fuzzy and fragmented meanings on its design and performance. The panel will discuss the need for deeper, systematic consideration of “infrastructure” to re-establishes its relevance, purpose and value for modern societies.

25 April, 2018 - UCL CDCN Seminar: 'Development of memory and spatial circuits in the rat'

Time: 16:00:00 - 17:00:00

Speaker: Dr Francesca Cacucci, UCL GOS Institute of Child Health “'Development of memory and spatial circuits in the rat” Abstract: Since the seminal discovery made by John O’Keefe in the 1970s, that single hippocampal pyramidal neurons emit spikes when a rat is traversing a restricted portion of space (the cell’s place field), a host of spatial responses has been uncovered in the hippocampal formation and beyond. We now know that these spatial networks contain neurons encoding the current heading of the animal (head direction cells), its current location (place cells), cells encoding prominent boundaries located at specific directions from the animal (boundary cells) and distance travelled (grid cells). Together, these spatial responses are thought to constitute a neural map that the organism can use to know where it is and to navigate towards goal locations....

1 May, 2018 - Cancer Research UK Brain Tumour Conference 2018

Time: -

Cancer Research UK inaugural Brain Tumour Conference will unite the brightest minds in cancer research to discuss and debate some of the greatest issues in the field. Our multidisciplinary programme combines expertise from across the breadth of brain tumour research, together with insights from allied disciplines, to spark new opportunities for collaborative research. Although survival rates for most cancers have shown an encouraging upward trend, the fearsome complexity of the brain, and the plethora of different disease subtypes, has left brain tumour survival languishing at the bottom of the table. Our intention is to provide a stimulating environment where scientists from across the research pipeline can showcase new discoveries, spark new collaborations, and create the synergy needed to accelerate progress for patients.

1 May, 2018 - Experimental Psychology Seminar: “The Toolkit for Building Better Learners”

Time: 13:00:00 - 14:00:00

Speaker: Veronica Yan, University of Texas Abstract: Given that the majority of learning takes place in the learners’ own hands, it is important that we understand how to manage our own learning effectively and efficiently. Despite being engaged in learning throughout our lives, research shows that our intuitions about how we learn are oftentimes exactly wrong, leading us to choose suboptimal learning strategies over more effective and efficient ones. While intuitions tell us that we should find strategies that make learning feel easy, the most effective study strategies are in fact the ones that introduce challenges to the learner and engage them more effortfully (aka “desirable difficulties”). Being an effective, self-regulated learner therefore not only requires knowing the right toolset of strategies to use, but also requires holding the right mindsets to appreciate that difficulty is important and integral to the process of learning.

1 May, 2018 - How can I facilitate meaningful conversations with stakeholders?

Time: 10:00:00 - 11:30:00

At the core of Public Engagement (PE) and Patient and Public Involvement (PPI) is conversation. We believe that research should include public and patient voices, and that this inclusion leads to better outcomes for all. Moving from that belief to actually facilitating conversations can be quite a leap, particularly for those without training or experience. In this session, we will interrogate different ways of facilitating meaningful conversations with public and patient groups, and other key stakeholder groups. We will begin the session with some brief case studies, leading to conversations wherein all attending can discuss and experiment with facilitation techniques. This is part of a series of events to support those across the UCL School of Life and Medical Sciences (SLMS) working in Public Engagement and Patient and Public Involvement. These take place regularly, focussing on different topics each time.

Time: 17:30:00 - 18:30:00

Speaker: Dr Rebecca Fisher, University of Nottingham Followed by refreshments. No registration required – please just come along. About this lecture: Implementation research investigates why interventions found to be effective in clinical trials often fail to be successfully translated into the care that patients receive. This talk will discuss what ‘implementation’ means, drawing on theoretical frameworks that can be used to investigate this translational gap. Findings will be presented from research investigating Early Supported Discharge, a home-based rehabilitation intervention, delivered by a stroke specialist multidisciplinary team. The aim will be to show how implementation research can identify ways to facilitate evidence based practice and ensure research findings actually improve the care that patients receive.

10 May, 2018 - Rick Battarbee Lecture Series: Dame Professor Georgina Mace FRS

Time: 17:00:00 - 20:00:00

Organised by UCL Geography

Valuing nature in a human-dominated world Nature conservation has traditionally focused on preservation and protection. However, this approach is increasingly being challenged as the impact of human activities on land and in the sea continues to spread and intensify. At the same time, people depend on nature for material goods, as well as for many less tangible benefits that we have taken for granted but may now be at risk, including many ecosystem-based functions and services. I will show how the focus of conservation has shifted from preserving biodiversity (primarily species & habitats and their spatial patterns), to maintaining form and function, adaptability and resilience. Using examples from the UK and internationally I will then introduce some new techniques for measuring and prioritising natural systems and processes, especially relevant in a changing world.

21 May, 2018 - Grid cells and cognitive maps meeting at Sainsbury Wellcome Centre

Time: -

Registration is now open for the Grid Cell Meeting on May 21st & 22nd at The Sainsbury Wellcome Centre. Entorhinal grid cells express spatially regular firing patterns, thought to support self-localisation and navigation. Recent advances suggest grid representations may generalise to non-spatial domains; providing a mechanism for organising conceptual knowledge. Via talks, posters and data blitz sessions this two day meeting will bring together experimenters and theoreticians to discuss the latest developments in the grid cell field relating to both spatial and non-spatial coding. Only a limited number of places and posters boards are available. Register to express your interest in attending and to indicate if you would like to present a poster. A limited number of travel awards will be available for Early Career Researchers presenting a poster. If you would like to be considered for an award please indicate this during the registration process.

13 June, 2018 - How can I share the impact of public engagement / involvement on both my research and its broader stakeholders in a meaningful way?

Time: 14:00:00 - 15:30:00

What happens when a Public Engagement (PE) or Patient and Public Involvement (PPI) project finishes? Funders and research institutions increasingly expect project leaders to maintain future relationships with public and patient groups. Often funders will expect you to maintain those relationships and, regardless, responsible PE or PPI should plan for what happens at the end. Impact - or the change your work can make - is one way to consider the legacy of your public engagement or patient and public involvement work. This is part of a series of events to support those across the UCL School of Life and Medical Sciences (SLMS) working in Public Engagement and Patient and Public Involvement. These take place regularly, focussing on different topics each time.
