7 December, 2016 - SLMS Introduction to Information Governance

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

This event will provide clear guidance on information governance responsibilities and control, how these affect research activities and how the SLMS Information Governance Framework can help researchers meet their legal obligations. UCL staff and students who handle sensitive personal data are eligible to attend. If you have attended this course before or you have up-to-date Information Governance training then you do not need to attend this event. Attendance at this event together with successful completion of an online assessment in Moodle (‘SLMS Information Governance - Assessment of Understanding’) will fulfil your information governance training needs under the SLMS IG Framework. On passing the assessment, a certificate will be issued and your training is recorded on the SLMS IG training register. Training will be valid for one year. To renew you just need to retake and pass the Moodle Assessment of Understanding online.

9 December, 2016 - Neuronal mechanisms of context-dependent spatial hearing

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

Speaker: Michael Pecka, LMU Munich, Germany Conventionally, it had been assumed that the brain’s representation of the location of sound sources encodes for absolute positions in space. Recent experimental findings from our and other groups instead suggest a relative representation of auditory space. I will present data from psychophysical tests revealing that the perceived location of a stationary sound source can shift substantially depending on the prior acoustic experience. Neurophysiological findings established that these perceptional shifts could be explained by response adaptation of binaural brainstem neurons. I will explain how this context-dependency of spatial processing transformed our ideas about the brain’s coding of auditory space to optimize information about sound source separation rather than absolute location.

17 January, 2017 - UCL Populations & Lifelong Health Domain Symposium - The future health of the public: Towards transdisciplinary research

Time: -

This one-day conference, organised by the UCL Populations & Lifelong Health Domain, will showcase transdisciplinary research taking place at UCL in population health. Talks are planned on a diverse range of themes including healthy cities, digital health and antimicrobial resistance. The event will provide an opportunity to hear from funders about their plans for the future funding of transdisciplinary research and there will be time for discussions with funders, users of funded research and plenty of opportunity to network with colleagues and build new collaborations. We are also holding an abstract competition for early career researchers around the session themes (healthy cities, digital health and antimicrobial resistance). The deadline for submitting abstracts is Friday 18 November. We strongly encourage attendance from staff across all of UCL at all career levels.

Location: UCL Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health, , 30 Guilford Street, London , WC1N 1EH
