19 September, 2018 - CDCN Seminar: Modelling "normal" in the developing brain using MRI to detect pathology in prematurity and childhood

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

Speaker: Dr Jonathan O'Muircheartaigh, Imaging & Biomedical Engineering, Kings College London Abstract: In clinical neuroimaging, rapid developmental changes occurring in both clinical MRI contrasts and quantitative techniques can act to mask pathology when investigating the developing brain. When comparing groups, this can reduce statistical power, but when trying to detect tissue changes in individual infants and children, this effectively means that sensitivity to pathology can depend on the age of the individual being assessed and indeed can lead to differing patterns of false positive and negative changes.In this work, I’ll present both parametric and non-parametric approaches to address brain growth, creating pseudo-growth curves of brain tissue and shape development. I’ll use these techniques to better describe white matter pathology in the neonatal brain and subtle changes in the childhood brain. All welcome to attend.

20 September, 2018 - Autism and Employment

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

The Centre for Research in Autism and Education (CRAE) at UCL Institute of Education are co-hosting an Autism and Employment event with leading UK autism research charity, Autistica. Companies are finally starting to realise the potential of autistic people, but how should an employer make adjustments to recruit these people and make employees feel valued and supported at work? This talk explores the work that is being done in London and around the world to improve neurodiversity in the workplace. Many autistic adults want to work and can bring new ways of thinking and working. Some autistic people have a talent for spotting patterns and an attention to detail which can be very useful to tech and finance industries. In more practical roles, some autistic people thrive with repetitive tasks whilst others would lose focus. These skills can fit a variety of sectors, but we need to adapt current practices.

20 September, 2018 - SWC Seminar: Cellular and circuit mechanisms for spatial computation

Time: 12:00:00 - 13:00:00

Speaker: Professor Matthew Nolan, University of Edinburgh How do cells of the brain implement computations important for cognition? The well characterised spatial firing of grid cells and other neurons in the medial entorhinal cortex (MEC) make this structure an excellent model for investigation of cognitive circuitry. However, the mechanisms by which grid and other spatial codes are established and their roles in behaviour are unclear. I will discuss experiments that investigate molecularly defined cell types in the medial entorhinal cortex, their contribution to real world and virtual behaviours, and principles for their organisation into functional circuits. No need to register, please just come along!

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

This 1½ hour workshop is particularly relevant for researchers who will have to produce a Data Management Plan as part of a funding application. Overview: Research Data Management (RDM) is an increasingly important skill for researchers across all disciplines and career stages. Research funders are increasingly introducing new requirements around Data Management as part of the application process. Often researchers will be asked to produce a Data Management Plan as part of a funding application or be required to share data at the end of a project. This workshop will provide a practical overview of the major issues in RDM including how to meet funder requirements, how to effectively store data during your project, and making decisions about whether to share research data. As part of the workshop participants will begin to develop a data management plan.

28 September, 2018 - Ear Institute talk

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

Speaker: Andrei S. Kozlov, Department of Bioengineering, Imperial College London 'Gating without swinging: a two-channel model of hair-cell mechanotransduction with membrane-mediated cooperativity' Sound-induced vibrations of the inner ear stretch tip links between stereocilia of hair cells and open mechanotransduction ion channels. Channel opening in turn relaxes the tip links. The classical gating-spring model ascribes this gating compliance to the conformational change of a single mechanotransduction channel upon gating, known as the gating swing. To reproduce the experimental data, however, the magnitude of the gating swing must be comparable to, or even greater than, the size of a typical ion channel. Experimental evidence indicates that each tip link is associated on average with two channels, and that the lipid bilayer modulates their gating, although it is not clear how....

11 October, 2018 - UCLPartners Centre for Neurorehabilitation Seminar: Exploiting plasticity in brainstem systems for rehabilitation, a lecture

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

Speaker: Professor Stuart Baker, Newcastle University About this lecture: In this lecture, I will describe our work on how the reticulospinal tract contributes to movement in healthy primates (including humans), with a special focus on hand function. This system becomes especially important when the corticospinal tract is damaged after a stroke; then, strengthening reticulospinal connections can aid, but also limit, recovery. Finally, I will review our most recent work exploring novel stimulus protocols which can induce plastic changes in this pathway, and describe how these can be used to improve hand function in stroke survivors.

I will use schizophrenia to offer a case study of computational psychiatry. We first review the basic phenomenology and pathophysiological theories of schizophrenia. These motivate the choice of a formal or computational framework within which to understand the symptoms and signs of schizophrenia; particularly, in terms of false beliefs or inference. This framework is the Bayesian brain. We will focus on the (neuromodulatory) encoding of uncertainty or precision within predictive coding implementations of active inference – to demonstrate computational approaches to the nature and pathogenesis of hallucinations and delusions.

18 October, 2018 - Webinar: Key data - Longitudinal data

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

Hosted by the UK Data Service, this webinar will introduce the wide range of longitudinal datasets available at the organisation. This introductory webinar is intended for anyone who wants to learn about the wide range of longitudinal datasets available via the UK Data Service. The Service provides access to various types of longitudinal data. One of these are the British Birth Cohort Studies (e.g. the National Child Development Study 1958 and The Millennium Cohort Study) which follow the same group of children born in a specific year throughout their lives, tracking changes and unravelling the reasons behind them. Another type is the successor of BHPS, Understanding Society, an innovative and world-leading study about lives and its changes in the UK in the 21st century. And finally, there are other studies such as the English Longitudinal Study of Ageing focusing on later life, following certain age cohorts and shedding light on their specific experiences over time.

25 October, 2018 - 'Health for All': How relevant is the Alma-Ata Declaration 40 years on?

Time: 12:30:00 - 14:00:00

Organised by UCL Population Health

The 1978 Alma-Ata Declaration was a major public health milestone of the twentieth century. It was the first international declaration stating the importance of primary health care, community action and the determinants of health outside the health system. It also emphasised the right to health and outlined governments' role and responsibilities to the health of their citizens. Forty years on, an Alma- Ata Declaration 2.0 is to be discussed in October at the World Health Assembly in May 2019 and is expected to renew the emphasis on primary care as the main driver of people-centred health systems leading to universal health care. To coincide with the anniversary, UCL's Faculty of Population Health Sciences is bringing together a panel of experts to discuss what progress has been made and the relevance of the Declaration in 2018.

30 October, 2018 - UCLPartners Centre for Neurorehabilitation: Clinical Networking event

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

Neurorehabilitation for young adults: How do we include parenting and spousal roles? More and more young adults are presenting with complex neurological conditions, and commonly their rehabilitation needs to include the return to parenting and spousal roles. This work is often carried out by adult neurological rehabilitation teams who may not be trained in, for example, understanding a child’s needs or perspective. Therapists may be unfamiliar with what parental and spousal roles entail, and added to this, child and adult health and social care services may be disjointed. Using our usual 10-minute presentation format, we invite you to share your experiences of how teams have addressed these challenges. How and when do we involve children in the rehabilitation of their parent? How have we used other sectors – charities / education / social services? Please send your abstracts (up to 100 words) to cnr@ucl.ac.uk by 10th October.

8 November, 2018 - Realising aspirations? Gender, ethnicity and job inequalities

Time: 17:00:00 - 19:00:00

Our research shows that even from a very young age, when girls and boys think about what they want to be when they grow up, they tend to go for jobs where their own gender make up most of the workforce. And the jobs girls set their sights on pay on average 27 per cent or £6.49 less per hour than those their male peers aspire to. On the other hand, while ethnic minorities, and particularly minority girls, may have high hopes of a well-paying job, in reality they do not go on to fulfil these aspirations. At this event we will explore recent findings from two national longitudinal studies, funded by the ESRC: the Millennium Cohort Study, which has been following the lives of around 19,000 children born in the UK at the turn of the century, and Next Steps, which is following around 16,000 people now in their late twenties.

27 November, 2018 - Lunch Hour Lecture: What Can the ONS Longitudinal Study Tell Us about Time Travel and about the Force?

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

The ONS Longitudinal Study is a sample of around 1% of persons in England and Wales, drawn from the decennial census. The sample comprises all people born on four (undisclosed) days spread through the year. Sample members’ census records from 1971 through to 2011 are linked together. This lecture describes the study for those who have not used it before – and explains how to apply to use it – by drawing on two examples. Firstly, we consider the film Back To The Future, and ask ‘what can the census tell us about time-travel?’. Mirroring the plot structure as far as we can, we compare the outcomes of people who were teenagers in the mid-1950s and people who were teenagers in the mid-1980s. Secondly, we turn to the Star Wars films, and consider the extent of faith of people who indicated in the 2001 Census that they followed the Jedi religion.

29 November, 2018 - People, pathways and policy: findings from the CLS Research Programme

Time: 09:30:00 - 18:30:00

This one day event from the Centre for Longitudinal Studies is an opportunity to hear evidence from a major programme of research examining and comparing the lives and experiences of thousands of individuals across the UK, from multiple generations. We will share brand new insights, and ask what these mean for public policy today. Our Cross Cohort Research Programme is a major initiative, using data from our own four cohort studies and other UK studies, to understand how our lives unfold and what can help improve people’s chances in life. Incorporating seven projects, the programme has explored many themes relevant to policy makers and practitioners, including: - The long-term implications of childhood mental ill health - The rising prevalence of obesity - The link between parents’ wealth and their children’s own life chances
