Neurosciences Distinguished Lecture Series Weds, Feb 20, 2019, 4:00 222 Morrill Science Center 2 Bita Moghaddam Behavioral Neuroscience Oregon Health Science Center, School of Medicine Action computation in anxiety The Moghaddam lab uses a systems approach to study the neuronal mechanisms that maintain cognitive and emotional functions in key brain regions that have been implicated in symptoms of schizophrenia, ADHD, anxiety, and addictive disorders. Their primary focus is on prefrontal cortex subregions and dopamine neurons in the midbrain.

Neurosciences Distinguished Lecture Series Weds, April 10, 2019, 4:00 222 Morrill Science Center 2 Marlene Behrmann Department of Psychology Carnegie Mellon University A broader vision of object recognition: beyond ventral cortex Abstract: The neural correlates of object recognition are typically assumed to be under the purview of the ventral pathway of the cortical visual system. Decades of empirical studies using neuroimaging as well as single unit recording in awake behaving non-human primates have supported this conclusion. I will describe some…
