25 September, 2017 - A Penny for Your Thoughts: A Workshop on Social Cognition 25-26 September

Time: 10:00:00 - 14:00:00

Organised by Simone Shamay-Tsoory and Uri Hertz, A Penny for Your Thoughts is a workshop on social cognition, exploring how culture and values, friends and family, define who we are, and how we make sense of the social environment. The event brings together scientists of the mind with varied approaches to the study of interactions, ranging from developmental psychology and cognitive neuroscience, to neurobiology and clinical psychology, with the goal to spark discussion and future collaborations. Sponsored by the British Council’s UK-Israel SYNERGY Programme, the event is organised by The Human Mind Project at the University of London. The event will be chaired by Colin Blakemore (London), Chris Frith (London) and Mattia Gallotti (London).

Location: Room 243 and Room 246, Second Floor, Senate House, Malet Street, London, WC1E 7HU

26 September, 2017 - 2017 CRAE Annual Lecture and Farewell to Professor Liz Pellicano

Time: 18:30:00 - 19:30:00

Can non-autistic scientists ever really understand what autistic people and their families need from their research? That’s a question that activists and community groups have been asking with increasing vigour over recent years. In what will be the Centre for Autism Research & Education (CRAE) 8th Annual Lecture, world-renowned researcher and departing CRAE Director, Professor Liz Pellicano, will be speaking on this critical topic in her talk entitled, Knowing Autism. As part of this talk, Liz looks back at her years at the Centre to investigate, in depth, what the autistic community rightly demands of autism research and the major changes that will need to be made to deliver on their expectations. We hope you will join us for this special, free-to-attend event and in wishing Liz, and her family, all the best in their new Australian adventure. We will also be serving light refreshments following the lecture.

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

The first Experimental Psychology seminar of the new Term will be on Tuesday 3rd October 2017. Michael Hornberger, University of East Anglia - Spatial navigation in neurodegenerative lesion models Abstract: “In my talk I will present data showing how neurodegenerative lesion models (Alzheimer’s Disease, Frontotemporal Dementia) can be employed for the investigation of spatial navigation processes in the human brain. More specifically, I will show recent data showing how neurodegenerative syndromes and their prodromal forms show different allocentric and egocentric navigation patterns and how this relates to the underlying atrophy in these patients. I will discuss how the results inform better diagnosis and treatment of those patients and also theoretical models of spatial navigation.” The host for the seminar will be Hugo Spiers (h.spiers@ucl.ac.uk). Anyone who is interested is welcome to attend.

10 October, 2017 - Experimental Psychology Seminar: How representations of prediction error explain speech perception and deception

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

Dr. Helen Blank, Institute of Systems Neuroscience, University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf. Abstract: “Perception depends on combining sensory input with prior knowledge. When sensory signals are degraded, informative priors can improve perception but may also lead to deception. In my talk, I will contrast two functionally-distinct computational mechanisms by which prior expectations can influence sensory representation of degraded speech. Expected features of the speech input can be enhanced or sharpened (Sharpened Signals). Alternatively, in Predictive Coding accounts, expected features are suppressed and unexpected signals (Prediction Errors) are processed further. I will present two fMRI experiments, which aimed at distinguishing between these two accounts. By combining behavioural, univariate and multivariate fMRI measures of how prior expectations lead to speech perception or speech deception, we provide evidence uniquely consistent with Prediction Error computations.”

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

Mirco Musolesi, Reader in Data Science, Department of Geography, University College London, The Alan Turing Institute Abstract: In the recent years, the emergence and widespread adoption of new technologies from social media to smartphones are rapidly changing the social sciences, since they allow researchers to analyse, study and model human behavior at a scale and at a granularity that were unthinkable just a few years ago. These developments can be seen as the emergence of a new data-driven and computation-based approach to social science research, usually referred to as “computational social science”.

8 November, 2017 - Stroke One Day Course: Advanced Stroke Neuroimaging

Time: -

This short course offered by the world leading UCL Institute of Neurology in Queen Square gives an overview of the neuroimaging of stroke and mechanical thrombectomy. This course will outline methods of quantifying the impact of the stroke using advanced imaging techniques– from penumbral and core infarct size through to methods of imaging recovery from stroke. It will also cover the more familiar aspects of imaging stroke such as using CT and MRI based modalities to evaluate infarcts and haemorrhages. There is an introduction to the benefits and applications of mechanical thrombectomy. Learning Outcomes: 1. To understand advanced imaging techniques used to quantify stroke recovery 2. Describe cerebral neurovascular anatomy 3. Understand how the ischaemic penumbra can be imaged Examples of lecture topics: - Cerebral Anatomy - Imaging Stroke Recovery - Ischaemic Stroke - Haemorrhagic Stroke - Introduction to Imaging for Stroke

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.
