A memory of errors in sensorimotor learning

Seminar: ICBS Seminar | October 24 | 11 a.m.-12 p.m. | 5101 Tolman Hall


Reza Shadmehr, Johns Hopkins University

Neuroscience Institute, Helen Wills


Current view of motor learning suggests that when we revisit a task, the brain recalls the motor commands it previously learned. In this view, motor memory is a memory of motor commands, acquired through trial-and-error and reinforcement. Here we show that the brain controls how much it is willing to learn from the current error through a principled mechanism that depends on the history of past...   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 >

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 >
