18 October, 2017 - Linguistics Seminar: The pervasive problems of processing negation

Time: 13:30:00 - 14:30:00

Speaker: Dr Nina Kazanina In this talk I will discuss issues arising during real time processing of sentences that contain a negative marker. First, I will examine negative sentences in Russian in which the negation changes the grammatical case of the direct object from Accusative to Genitive (the so-called ‘Genitive of Negation’), leading to a situation where the object cannot be incorporated into the parsing tree using a default parsing procedure. Second, I will discuss whether constructing the meaning of a negative sentence is inherently more difficult than constructing the meaning of an affirmative sentence, in particular, whether interpreting a negative sentence (e.g. ‘The top shelf does not contain a lamp.’) involves a two-step process that first invokes the corresponding affirmative (The top shelf contains a lamp.) and then negates it (NOT (The top shelf contains the lamp)). I consider both cases in a more global context of prediction in language processing

Dr Rachel Farrell, Consultant Neurologist/Honorary Senior Lecturer, NHNN In this lecture I will discuss existing treatment strategies for problematic MS symptoms focussing on spasticity and walking impairment, present data from the unit and future research directions. Biog: Dr Rachel Farrell is a consultant neurologist & honorary senior lecturer at the NHNN Queen Square. Dr Farrell specialises in multiple sclerosis (MS) particularly symptom management and neurorehabilitation. She completed a PhD in the department Neuroimmunology at the UCL Institute of Neurology, investigating aspects of disease modifying treatment for MS and role of viruses in the aetiology of MS. MS pathophysiology and treatment continue to be research interests. She is the CI of a phase II trial for a novel therapeutic agent for MS spasticity. Clinically Dr Farrell is part of the complex spasticity service and leads a multidisciplinary service to manage walking impairment in people with MS.

20 October, 2017 - Brain Meeting: 'Constructing confidence in ourselves and others’ - Dr. Dan Bang

Time: 15:15:00 - 16:15:00

Speaker: Dr. Dan Bang (WTCN, UCL) Title: Constructing confidence in ourselves and others Abstract: Decisions are often made in the face of uncertainty and in the absence of immediate feedback. Accompanying such decisions is a sense of confidence in having made the right choice which can be used to guide individual and social behaviour. In this talk, I will present our recent work on how a sense of confidence is constructed, how we estimate confidence in other’s choices, and how we adapt the way in which we communicate our confidence to the social context. In particular I will discuss the neural and the computational basis of these processes. In the last part of the talk, I will propose that individual biases in confidence are not merely due to limitations in how the mind processes uncertainty, but at least in part reflect different strategies for engaging with the social world.

25 October, 2017 - Talking taboo: Public engagement with sensitive issues

Time: 14:00:00 - 16:00:00

This event will highlight public engagement projects that have tackled sensitive topics successfully. You’ll hear from the experts who have led these projects and who understand how to transform an idea that could have some challenging outputs to a reality that stimulates conversation. Expect to gain insight into how to conduct a project around a sensitive issue, consider the challenges of this type of interaction, and meet like-minded people who can help your project to take shape. UCL Public Engagement Network sessions bring together people who are interested in public engagement.

14 November, 2017 - Experimental Psychology Seminar: Ecological learning: How children adapt their active learning strategies to achieve efficiency

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

Dr. Azzurra Ruggeri, Max Planck Institute for Human Development. “Ecological learning: How children adapt their active learning strategies to achieve efficiency.” How do young children learn so much about the world so efficiently? This talk presents the results of recent studies investigating theoretically and empirically how children actively seek information in their physical and social environments as evidence to test and dynamically revise their hypotheses and theories over time. In particular, it will focus on how children adapt their active learning strategies, such as question-asking and explorative behavior, in response to the task characteristics, to the statistical structure of the hypothesis space, and to the feedback received. Such adaptiveness and flexibility is crucial to learn in situations of uncertainty, when testing alternative hypotheses, making decisions, drawing causal inferences and solving categorisation tasks.

21 November, 2017 - Experimental Psychology Seminar: Roles of hippocampus and neocortex in learning and memory in mice – from synapse to behaviour

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

Michael Kohl, University of Oxford Roles of hippocampus and neocortex in learning and memory in mice – from synapse to behaviour Abstract: We recently identified a left-right dissociation of synaptic plasticity in the mouse hippocampus. To investigate possible effects on behaviour, we used optogenetics to unilaterally silence hippocampal CA3 pyramidal cells in mice performing hippocampus-dependent memory tasks. Whilst silencing of either the left or the right CA3 caused a short-term memory deficit, strikingly, only left CA3 silencing impaired long-term memory. Our data suggests that memory is routed via distinct left-right pathways within the mouse hippocampus. We are currently investigating whether this hemispheric specialisation extends to neocortical structures involved in associative memory.

28 November, 2017 - Language and Cognition Seminar - Learning to read and the transition from novice to expert: why reading experience matters

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

Speaker: Prof Kate Nation The scientific study of reading has taught us much about the beginnings of reading in childhood, with clear evidence that the gateway to reading opens when children are able to decode, or ‘sound out’ written words. Similarly, there is a large evidence base charting the cognitive processes that characterise skilled word recognition in adults. Less understood is how children develop word reading expertise. Once basic reading skills are in place, what factors are critical for children to move from novice to expert? This talk outlines the role of reading experience in this transition. Encountering individual words in text provides opportunities for children to refine their knowledge about how spelling represents spoken language. Alongside this however, reading experience provides much more than repeated exposure to individual words in isolation...more information in the link below.

Time: 13:10:00 - 13:55:00

When young people migrate to a new country, they often learn the local language rapidly and inevitably begin to translate on behalf of their family.
