    October 1, 2014 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM Division of Applied Mathematics, Pattern Theory Seminar William Bialek Professor, Department of Physics, Princeton University Statistical mechanics for real biological networks It is an old dream that ideas from statistical physics could help us understand the phenomena that emerge from biological networks, be they networks of genes, networks of neurons, or networks of organisms. In recent years, it has become possible to make increasingly accurate, simultaneous measurements on the states of (almost) all the nodes in such networks. I'll discuss the efforts that my colleagues and I are making to connect these data to statistical physics models. The key idea is the (quite old) maximum entropy principle: we try to build models that are consistent with some measured properties of the network (e.g., the correlations among the states of pairs of elements) but otherwise have as little structure as possible. I will use the example of a flock of birds to explain how this works, and to explain our surprise that it works so well. Statistical mechanics teaches us that, as systems become large, the parameter space breaks up into phases, and this also is true for families of maximum entropy models. Thus, we can ask where real networks are in the phase diagram of possible networks. For the flock, we'll see that the system is poised very close to a critical surface. We can go though a similar (but much more complex) analysis for a network of neurons in the vertebrate retina, and surprisingly we find the same answer — the system seems to be close to criticality, and we can detect hints of criticality in other systems as well. It seems that we are either seeing signs of something general, or we are fooling ourselves, and I'll outline a path to telling the difference. http://www.dam.brown.edu/ptg/seminar.html George Street 182, Room 110 (Applied Mathematics) Dept: Applied Mathematics, Brain Science Program, Biology and Medicine, Departments

Presenter: David Anthony, MD, MSc Director of Medical Student Education | Department of Family Medicine | Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University Program Description: The important outcome of medical education is not what was taught, but rather what is learned. Current scientific theories demonstrate that linking different systems of the brain during the learning process improves learning outcomes. By understanding factors that enhance or hinder learning, instructors can develop an optimal mental and physical environment for the students’ learning experience and enhance educational outcomes. During the session, attendees will be encouraged to reflect on the application of learned principles to their own teaching and be better teachers by understanding factors that enhance or hinder learning by using proven and evolving brainfriendly strategies. This session will demonstrate the application of learning principles and will focus on the Core area of Presentation and Lecturing Skills. Learning Objectives: 1. Describe several key principles of brain-friendly learning 2. List design factors of multimedia teaching materials that enhance or hinder learning 3. Reflect on the application of methods of cognitive load reduction to one’s own teaching materials, including Powerpoint presentations 4. Suggest improvements to existing curricular materials so as to reduce cognitive load and improve learning Accreditation The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

Title: Children’s Reasoning about People as Sources of Information Abstract: The capacity to learn from the verbal communication of others creates vast opportunities for learning, but for children to effectively make use of these opportunities they need to be able to assess the reliability of their sources. Recent research has documented that even preschool children can use a wide range of cues to make comparative source reliability judgments. I will present evidence that alongside these capacities there remain substantial vulnerabilities in young children’s reasoning about sources, including difficulties in reasoning about deceptive motives and in making absolute judgments about unreliable sources. Understanding these vulnerabilities can offer insights into the development of children's critical thinking skills. http://www.brown.edu/Departments/CLPS/events Metcalf Research Laboratory, Room 101, Friedman Auditorium Colloquia, Open to the Public, Dept: CLPS, First Years, Sophomores, Juniors, Seniors, For Masters candidates only, For PhD candidates only, Audience, Brain Science Program, Biology and Medicine, Lectures, Conferences, and Meetings, Faculty, Staff, Postdocs, Departments

His research has focused on how people make social inferences using a process called inverse planning, which assumes that people tend to act rationally to achieve their goals, given an environmental and social context. Inverse planning relies on Bayesian inference, a powerful framework for reasoning under uncertainty, to infer the goals and beliefs underlying other people's observed behavior by inverting models of rational planning. http://clps-scbb.weebly.com/ http://www.brown.edu/Departments/CLPS/events Metcalf Research Laboratory, Room 305 Dept: CLPS, Brain Science Program, Biology and Medicine, Departments

ABSTRACT: The design of sustainable chemicals and materials must be informed by rigorous assessments in order to minimize unintended consequences. While demonstrating advances in the rational design of safer chemicals establishing the first set of property-based guidelines for a distinguishing toxic chemicals from those in commerce generally, similar approaches are needed for engineering nanomaterials (ENMs). ENMs are an emerging class of substances with novel and desirable properties but uncertain implications for human and ecosystem health. To further characterize the toxicity potential and the design of safer carbon nanomaterials, established relationships between physiochemical characteristics and cytotoxic potential for both single-walled (SWNTs) and multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWNTs) will be reported. For SWNTs, aggregation state, not surface functionalization characteristics, correlate to loss in cell viability. However, for MWNTs, reactivity and antimicrobial activity can be controlled and manipulated through oxidation and selective reduction realizing the same antimicrobial activity and reactivity as SWNTs. This is important for both novel applications and unintended implications. http://www.brown.edu/Research/SRP/ Barus & Holley, Room 190 Open to the Public, Dept: Environmental Health and Safety, Environmental Focus, Audience, Cross-campus academic topics, Dept: Engineering, Biology and Medicine, Lectures, Conferences, and Meetings, Dept: Superfund, BioMed: Pathology, Departments, Seminars
