Complementary Semantic Systems

Seminar: ICBS Seminar | February 3 | 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m. | 5101 Tolman Hall


Dan Mirman, University of Alabama at Birmingham

Neuroscience Institute, Helen Wills


Representing concepts in terms of semantic features, like < has 4 legs > or < is yellow >, has driven major advances in understanding semantic cognition, integrating behavioral, neural, and computational research. Feature-based approaches are very good at capturing taxonomic relations such as DOG -- BEAR, but it is less clear how they could capture thematic relations such as DOG -- LEASH, which...   More >

Husserlian Phenomenology and Darwinian Evolutionary Biology: Complementarities, Exemplifications, and Implications

Seminar: ICBS Seminar | February 10 | 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m. | 5101 Tolman Hall


Maxine Sheets-Johnstone, University of Oregon

Neuroscience Institute, Helen Wills


Descriptive foundations and a concern with origins are integral to both Husserlian phenomenology and Darwinian evolutionary biology. The complementary aspects are rooted in the lifeworld as it is experienced. Detailed specifications of the complementary aspects testify to a mutual relevance of phenomenology to evolutionary biology and of evolutionary biology to phenomenology. Exemplifications of...   More >

The Role of Astrocytes in Neurovascular Coupling at the Capillary and Arteriole Level in the Retina and Brain

Seminar: Oxyopia Seminar | May 23 | 12-1:30 p.m. | 489 Minor Hall


Anusha Mishra, University College London, UK

Neuroscience Institute, Helen Wills


Neuronal activity evokes a spatially and temporally localized increase in blood flow to power the information processing carried out by the neurons, a phenomenon that underlies BOLD fMRI signals. This neurovascular coupling occurs both in the brain and the retina.

In the retina, both light- and glial-stimulation evoke pronounced arteriole dilations (30.8±3.7% and 23.5±4.1%, respectively). This...   More >
