Postdiction and Perceptual Awareness

Seminar: Oxyopia Seminar | November 3 | 12-1:30 p.m. | 489 Minor Hall


Shinsuke (Shin) Shimojo, California Institute of Technology

Neuroscience Institute, Helen Wills


There are a few postdictive perceptual phenomena known, in which a stimulus presented later seems causally to affect the percept of another stimulus presented earlier (=the operational definition of “postdictive phenomenon”). While backward masking and apparent motion provide classical examples, the flash lag effect and its variations have stimulated theorists. The TMS-triggered scotoma together...   More >

A Central Role For The Dorsal RAPHE Nucleus In Overcoming Fear

Lecture | November 7 | 10-11 a.m. | 3105 Tolman Hall


Michael A. McDannald, Boston College

Institute of Human Development


Learning to be afraid can be a healthy response to worldly events predictive of danger. In anxiety disorders, such as post-traumatic stress disorder, fear persists long after the danger has passed, and those events pose no threat. An abundance of studies have sought to uncover the brain regions critical to learning fear while fewer studies have sought to identify the brain regions that permit...   More >

The Lectureship Committee of the Department of Psychology is organizing a one-day event to honor the legacy of Edward Tolman, as a citizen and as a scientist. The conference will be held this November, to coincide with the anniversary events of the Free Speech Movement. Tolman fought his way through two mazes in his lifetime: first, the legal maze through the courts to protect the academic...   More >



Retinal Degenerations: Remodeling, Reprogramming and Pathoconnectomics

Seminar: Oxyopia Seminar | November 10 | 12-1:30 p.m. | 489 Minor Hall


Robert E Marc, University of Utah School of Medicine

Neuroscience Institute, Helen Wills


Retinal degenerations that cause the death of photoreceptors devolve to a large array of downstream network modifications (regardless of genotype) that impact interventions: gene therapies, cell therapies, retinal prosthetics, optogenetics and chemical photoswitches. I will review the scope of remodeling (largely structural revisions in cell form and connectivity), reprogramming (revisions in...   More >

Microbial and non-infectious keratitis; strategies for reducing the incidence of these conditions

Seminar: Oxyopia Seminar | November 17 | 12-1:30 p.m. | 489 Minor Hall


Mark Willcox, University of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia

Neuroscience Institute, Helen Wills


Microbial keratitis remains a problem during contact lens wear, indeed, its incidence has remained at the same rate for over 20 years, despite significant changes to contact lens materials and disinfecting solutions. The incidence of non-infectious keratitis during contact lens wear, which is due in many instances to colonisation of lenses by microbes, has apparently increased with the increased...   More >
