    September 19, 2014 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM Speaker: Andrew E. Monroe, Florida State University Title: Not so motivated after all? Taking a closer look at the process of blame Abstract: Over the past 20 years, moral judgment has typically been described as a motivated process wherein people’s intuitive desire to blame biases information processing and results in a tendency to over-blame. Yet, such a process of blame would be largely maladaptive and incongruent with using blame for everyday social-regulation. By examining how people update moral judgments in response to new information, I contrast the motivated-blame account with a systematic-blame hypothesis. I present new data showing that people carefully attend to causal and mental state information – regardless of its mitigating or exacerbating content – when making and updating blame judgments. This pattern of data sharply contrasts with the motivated blame account, favoring instead the systematic-blame hypothesis. These effects persist across different stimuli modalities, population groups, and are robust against bottom up effects (e.g., cognitive load). While systematic blame best captures everyday moral judgment, I discuss several new studies that highlight potential limits to systematic blaming, including: judging different moral tribes, the influence of emotion, power altering the social expression of blame, and moral beliefs biasing ascriptions of mind. 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

The use of meta-analysis methods has grown substantially in recent years, and new methodologies are being developed to counter ever-growing more complicated problems such as heterogeneity, network meta-analysis problems, among others. In the talk, we will first provide a review of several new meta-analysis methods developed recently using confidence distributions (CDs), which also includes a brief introduction of the CD concept and a CD-based unifying meta-analysis computing algorithm called “gmeta”. We will then present a concrete yet general multivariate meta-analysis approach for heterogeneous studies by using CDs. This approach only requires summary statistics of each study nevertheless it is shown to be asymptotically as efficient as the maximum likelihood approach using individual participant data (IPD) from all studies. Robustness issue is also explored. The method is illustrated by data simulated from a randomized clinical trials setting as well as by real data on aircraft landing performance. http://www.stat.brown.edu/Seminars.aspx 121 South Main, Room 245 Open to the Public, Audience, Dept: Applied Mathematics, Biology and Medicine, Lectures, Conferences, and Meetings, PH-biostatistics, Departments, Seminars

Title: Costs and benefits of cognitive control Abstract: Prefrontal cortex is a key component of a system that enables us to regulate our thoughts, behaviors and emotions, and impairments in all of these domains can readily be observed when this cognitive control system is compromised. Here, I explore a somewhat less intuitive hypothesis, namely that cognitive control has costs, as well as benefits, for cognition. I will provide evidence from several experiments in which we manipulated frontally-mediated cognitive control processes using noninvasive brain stimulation (transcranial direct current stimulation; TDCS) of prefrontal cortex and observed the consequences for different aspects of cognition. Using this experimental methodology, we demonstrate the costs and benefits of cognitive control for categorization, language production, learning, and creative problem solving. I will suggest that this framework for thinking about cognitive control has important implications for our understanding of cognition in children prior to maturation of prefrontal cortex. 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

REGISTRATION FEE: $25.00 (Includes Parking and Refreshments) REGISTER ONLINE—PRE-REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED https://apps.biomed.brown.edu/cme_registration/ STATEMENT OF NEED Chronic pain is a major public health problem in the United States and has been estimated to affect up to a third of Americans. However, after a decade of standard setting and research on pain control, health care practitioner assessment and management of patient pain continues to be inadequate. Evidence-based guidelines emphasize thorough patient assessment, prompt recognition of patient pain, frequent monitoring, multimodal analgesic therapies, and patient input; yet, there are persistent gaps in clinicians’ knowledge and practice around key areas of chronic pain management. Additionally, rates of misuse and abuse of nonprescription medications have not abated over the past decade, resulting in addiction, drug poisoning, and overdose death. Despite these concerns, appropriate use of opioids can improve a patient’s quality of life. Thus, education on best practices for opioid safe use is critical for all clinicians managing patients with chronic pain. TARGET AUDIENCE This activity is intended for health care professionals who prescribe ER/LA opioids. EDUCATIONAL ACTIVITY LEARNING OBJECTIVES Upon completion of this course, the participants should be able to: • Appropriately assess patients for the treatment of pain with ER/LA opioid analgesics, including analyzing risks versus potential benefits • Assess patient’s risk of abuse, including substance use and psychiatric history • Identify state and federal regulations on opioid prescribing • Incorporate strategies to effectively initiate therapy, modify dosing or discontinue use of ER/LA opioid analgesics in patients with pain • Manage ongoing therapy with ER/LA opioid analgesics • Incorporate effective counseling for patients and caregivers about the safe use of ER/LA opioid analgesics • Discuss general and product-specific drug information related to ER/LA opioid analgesics COMMERCIAL SUPPORT ACKNOWLEDGMENT This activity is supported by an educational grant from The REMS Companies.

    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

There are unresolved debates about the meaning of causality and the methods that should be used to measure it. As a statistician, I am trained to say that randomized experiments are a gold standard, yet I have spent almost all my applied career analyzing observational data. In this talk we shall consider various approaches to causal reasoning from the perspective of an applied statistician who recognizes the importance of causal identification, yet must learn from available information. http://www.stat.brown.edu/Seminars.aspx 121 South Main, Room 245 Open to the Public, Audience, Dept: Applied Mathematics, Biology and Medicine, Lectures, Conferences, and Meetings, PH-biostatistics, Departments, Seminars

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.
