Neurocomputational mechanisms underlying social norms and controllability

Colloquium | November 28 | 10:30 a.m.-12 p.m. | 1104 Berkeley Way West


Xiaosi Gu, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai

Neuroscience Institute, Helen Wills


To maintain the normal functioning of a society, individuals must be able to learn to adapt to norms. Neuroimaging studies have suggested that the ventromedial prefrontal cortex (vmPFC) and the insular cortex might be important for norm learning. However, norms are not static processes but rather, can be changed and updated if individuals of a society learn to act on them. In other words, the...   More >

Gesture: its relationship to thinking and speaking

Seminar: ICBS Seminar | December 3 | 4-5 p.m. | 3335 Dwinelle Hall


Sotaro Kita, University of Warwick

Neuroscience Institute, Helen Wills


This presentation concerns a theory on how gestures (accompanying speaking and silent thinking) are generated and how gestures facilitate the gesturer's own cognitive processes. I will present evidence that gestures are generated from a general-purpose Action Generator, which also generates “practical” actions such as grasping a cup to drink, and that the Action Generator generates gestural...   More >

Individual differences in brain development and plasticity - effects on learning

Colloquium | December 12 | 10:30 a.m.-12 p.m. | 1104 Berkeley Way West


Allyson Mackey, University of Pennsylvania

Neuroscience Institute, Helen Wills


Dr. Allyson Mackey will discuss her research on understanding individual differences in brain development and plasticity, and the impact of these differences on learning and academic performance. She will present research linking socioeconomic status, which encompasses a broad set of childhood experiences, to the structure and function of cortex. She then will examine the impact of specific...   More >
