Michelle "Mikki" Hebl, Professor, Rice University
In this talk, Mikki will discuss the role of gatekeepers in preventing indviduals, often women and members of underrepresented groups, from attaining their potential. Mikki will review some of her programmatic research on subtle discrimination and will then provide some of her most recent studies and data on gender and race gatekeeping.

Social bondingincluding the social learning that underpins the creation of early emotional ties between infants and their caretakersare among the most fundamental developmental processes for human survival and well-being. Social attention is thought to play a crucial role in these processes, but little is known about the neurodevelopmental mechanismsparticularly regarding the involvement of... More >

Patrick Cavanagh, Department of Psychology, Glendon College and Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences, Dartmouth College
How do we know where things are? Recent results indicate that an objects visual location is constructed at a high level where, critically, an objects motion is discounted to recover its current location, much like we discount the illumination when we perceive color. As a result we sometimes see a target far from its actual location. These predictions operate differently for eye movements,... More >

Maria Watson Ph.D
In this talk Maria will present an overview of the clinical treatment (individual and group CBT and Motivational Interviewing) and long-term management (Peer Support and Harm Reduction) of Hoarding Disorders. The focus will be on adapting your evidence-based tool kit and treatment goals, to work with these often complex and highly comorbid clients, in real life settings.

A common task facing computational scientists and, arguably, the brains of primates more generally is to construct models for data, particularly ones that invoke latent variables. Although it is often natural to identify the latent variables of such a model with the true unobserved variables in the world, the correspondence between the two can be more complicated, as when the former are...

Arlie Hochschild, Professor Emerita, UC Berkeley Department of Sociology
Arlie Hochschild's latest book, Strangers in Their Own Land: Anger and Mourning on the American Right (The New Press, September 2016) focuses on the rise of the American right. Based on intensive interviews of Tea Party enthusiasts in Louisiana, conducted over the last five years and focusing on emotions, Hochschild scales an empathy wall to learn how to see, think and feel as they do. What do... More >

Sheldon Cohen, Professor, Carnegie Mellon University
This talk is a summary of Dr. Cohens research over the last 45 years. It is organized by pivots experiences that altered the direction of his work. Work he will discuss includes studies of the effects of environmental noise (traffic and aircraft) on cognition, affect and physiology of elementary school children; of the role of social ties, social supports, and social conflicts in physical...

Daniel Horowitz, Professor Emeritus, Smith College
In December 2017, Oxford University Press published 'Happier? The History of a Cultural Movement That Aspired to Transform America' by Daniel Horowitz, an emeritus professor from Smith College. Focusing on the period from 1940 to 1970, this talk will cover some of the origins of the study of happiness and then go on to suggest some of the key aspects that shaped the field in the last half century.

Rick Hanson, Ph.D.
Mental resources like determination, self-worth, and kindness are what make us resilient: able to cope with adversity and push through challenges in the pursuit of opportunities. While resilience helps us recover from loss and trauma, it offers much more than that. True resilience fosters well-being, an underlying sense of happiness, love, and peace. Remarkably, as you internalize experiences of... More >
