Prefrontal functioning and Deep Brain Stimulation in Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

Dr. Annemieke Apergis-Schoute, PhD
Assistant Professor
Department of Neuroscience, Psychology and Behaviour
University of Leicester (UK)

Monday, May 20th, 2019
11am-12pm
BST 1495 Conference Room

Dr. Apergis-Schoute will discuss recent findings of a deep brain stimulation (DBS) study comparing the effects of ventral capsule (VC) and anteromedial subthalamic nucleus (amSTN) stimulation on OCD symptomatology, mood and cognitive flexibility. She will also discuss deficits in prefrontal safety signaling in Pavlovian threat reversal in OCD, as well as other cognitive flexibility tasks and their underlying neural circuits affected in OCD patients.

Pint of Science: Listening, Learning, and the Brain, Anna Fisher and Lori Holt Present
May 20 @ 6:00 PM – 8:30 PM

Attention Regulation and Learning in Young Children
Anna Fisher (Associate Professor of Psychology, Carnegie Mellon University)
There is a widespread agreement that attention is vital for learning from the crib to the classroom and beyond. In this talk, I will discuss one way in which attention plays a role in learning. I will use examples from my own research as well as studies done by other researchers to argue that when it comes to use of embellishments in educational materials for young children, more does not necessarily mean better!

Your Brain at a Cocktail Party
Lori Holt (Professor of Psychology, Carnegie Mellon University)
Listening in on a lively cocktail party conversation seems effortless. But, it actually requires complex interactions between ear and brain. I will share what we know about the science of sound, especially as it relates to listening in challenging context like a crowded pub.
