20 November, 2014 - High field metabolic imaging: from system architecture to application

Time: 12:30:00 - 15:00:00

The talk surveys recent advanced magnetic resonance spectroscopy methodology for human 3T , 7T and 9.4T application and shows related applications in psychiatric imaging, diagnostic imaging in spinal cord disorders and investigations of the physiology of the myocardium. In addition, recent advances on ultra-high field methodology including RF coil design, B0 shimming and RF pulse design are presented that serve as enabling technology for metabolic imaging at ultra high field.

20 November, 2014 - Lunch Hour Lecture: Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde: understanding other people’s actions

Time: 13:15:00 - 13:55:00

Successful human interactions depend upon the verbal and non-verbal signals from one individual to another. Our ability to read and understand other people’s actions is essential, and is part of what makes humans such a pro-social species. Dr Kilner will describe our current understanding of the neural mechanisms involved.
