31 January, 2018 - Grid cells and cognitive maps meeting at Sainsbury Wellcome Centre - Register your interest by 31 January 2018

Time: -

Registration is now open for the Grid Cell Meeting on May 21st & 22nd at The Sainsbury Wellcome Centre - please register your interest by 31 January 2018, and to indicate if you would like to present a poster. Only a limited number of places and posters boards are available. 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. 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.

She is now a lecturer in Crime and Forensic Science at UCL. Dr Philippa Moss: completed her PhD in HIV-associated painful neuropathies at Imperial, and as since worked as science communicator and content manager at the Science Museum with BBC’s Tomorrow’s World. She is now a science communication officer based at Imperial College London.

6 February, 2018 - Experimental Psychology Seminar - "Cooperation in large-scale human societies — What, if anything, makes it unique, and how did it evolve?"

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

Speaker: Simon T. Powers, School of Computing, Edinburgh Napier University There is much controversy about whether the cooperation underlying the functioning of human societies is explained by self-interest. Confusion over this has frustrated the understanding of how large-scale societies could ever have arisen and been maintained. To clarify this situation, I will present a conceptual framework showing that two factors need to be disentangled and resolved. First, how small- and large-scale societies differ in cooperation needs to be ascertained. Second, whether the decision-making mechanisms used by individuals are incentive-driven and/or domain-general needs to be determined. I will use this framework to review the literature on cooperation across societal scales and decision-making mechanisms. This then allows us to delineate between the cultural group selection and the institutional-path hypotheses for explaining the origin of large-scale cooperative societies.

14 February, 2018 - Brain networks in cognitive control - Prof John Duncan

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

UCL Centre for Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience Seminars. Prof John Duncan, University of Cambridge: “Brain networks in cognitive control” Abstract: Brain imaging shows two well-known networks involved in cognitive control – a multiple-demand or MD network, whose activity usually increases with increased task demand, and a default-mode network (DMN), especially active during rest. Here I shall discuss their complementary contributions to cognitive control, presenting a combination of behavioural, anatomical and imaging data. The MD system, I suggest, is involved in splitting complex problems into fine-grained, focused parts or attentional episodes, a function closely related to fluid intelligence. In contrast, the DMN encodes spatial, temporal and other aspects of broad context, providing the setting for more focused cognitive operations. All welcome to attend.

5 March, 2018 - ‘How to write the PPI section of a grant form’ - UCL Hospitals Biomedical Research Centre workshop

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

The National Institute for Health Research University College London Hospitals Biomedical Research Centre in partnership with UCLPartners is running a programme of regular award-winning workshops for clinical academic researchers on patient and public involvement (PPI) in research. The workshops, which are supported by the Wellcome Trust and open to researchers working in UCLPartners partnership organisations, are practical and the aim is to build up researchers’ skills in effectively involving lay people in the research process, from setting research priorities to designing protocols. This workshop is for beginners (people who are new to the active involvement of patients and the public in research). It will cover some basic PPI principles and look at how to complete the PPI section ofgrant application forms. Topics covered include what large funders are looking for in terms of PPI.

6 March, 2018 - Experimental Psychology Seminar - "Visual stimulus processing and spatial memory in the retrosplenial cortex"

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

Speaker: Frank Sengpiel, University of Cardiff The retrosplenial cortex (RSC) has been shown to be involved in a number of cognitive functions, in particular episodic memory and navigation, but relatively little is known about responses at the neuronal level. We have analysed activity in the RSC of awake mice to simple visual stimuli using two-photon calcium imaging and found that single cells respond in a coarse spatially but not orientation selective manner. Interestingly, activity was strongly modulated by the animals’ locomotion, even in complete darkness. We further investigated the pattern of activity in RSC as mice were trained on a spatial memory task and found evidence for the formation of a memory engram. The stability of this engram was linked to the animals’ performance upon re-exposure to the task.

13 March, 2018 - Experimental Psychology Seminar - "Human face processing in orientation and spatial frequency domains"

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

Speaker: Valerie Goffaux (Universite Catholique de Louvain, Belgium) Face perception results from a hierarchical processing chain in the ventral pathway, with increasingly complex computations performed as visual signals proceed from primary to high-level regions. Research in the field addresses how facial features (e.g., the eyes) are integrated at high-level stages of processing to enable e.g. identity recognition. The contribution of primary visual cues such as orientation and spatial frequency is often ignored. I will present psychophysics, developmental, EEG and neuroimaging data demonstrating that core aspects of high-level face processing are tuned to selective orientation and spatial frequency ranges. Recent findings of our lab further indicate that the primary encoding of orientation itself is influenced by the high-level structure of the (face) image.

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.

The 19th annual Queen Square Symposium will take place on 29th May 2018. The Symposium is organised by the Queen Square Committee and brings together MSc and PhD students across diverse neuroscience domains, including clinical, cognitive and computational scopes of study, and offers students at the IoN an invaluable opportunity to showcase and discuss their research. It provides a platform for students to network with peers, gain a broader perspective of neuroscience research, and to gather feedback on their work from the variety of academics present on the day. The symposium will be a day-long event commencing with poster sessions in the morning, and talks by students and renowned UCL neuroscientists in the afternoon. The 2018 programme and prizes categories will be finalised shortly, and will be available on the Symposium web page. The programme will follow a similar format to the 2017 Symposium, details of which can be viewed via the link below.
