    October 31, 2014 3:00 PM - 4:30 PM Friedman Family Lecture in Cognitive, Linguistic & Psychological Sciences. Speaker: Rebecca Burwell, Brown University. Title: Optogenetic Modulation of Recognition Memory. Abstract: Perirhinal cortex has a well-established role in the identification and recognition of individual items and objects. Animals and humans with perirhinal damage are unable to distinguish familiar from novel objects or images in recognition memory tasks. In single-unit recording studies, perirhinal neurons respond to both novelty and familiarity of presented objects by increasing or decreasing firing rates. How novelty and familiarity are signaled to other brain regions, however, is unknown. In my talk, I will present our evidence that perirhinal neurons are involved in signalling novelty and familiarity to other brain regions by firing in phase with specific frequencies. During exploration of novel and familiar images, optogenetic stimulation of perirhinal cortex at 30 Hz caused animals to treat an image as if it were novel by exploring it more. Stimulation at 11 Hz caused animals to treat an image as familiar by exploring it less. Subsequent experiments confirmed that perirhinal stimulation at these frequencies is neither appetitive nor aversive, ruling out valence as a possible mechanism. We also confirmed that the optimal frequency band to signal novelty is 30-40 Hz and the optimal frequency band to signal familiarity is 10-15 Hz. These results provide evidence that information about novelty may be modulated, independently, by different temporal codes. This modulation may be accomplished by medial prefrontal-perirhinal interactions. http://brown.edu/Departments/CLPS/events Metcalf Research Laboratory, Room 305 Dept: CLPS, Brain Science Program, Biology and Medicine, Lectures, Conferences, and Meetings, Departments, Lectures

    November 7, 2014 3:00 PM - 4:30 PM Friedman Family Lecture in Cogntive, Linguistic & Psychological Sciences. Speaker: Norbert Fortin, University of California, Irvine. Title: The neurobiology of the memory for sequences of events: a synergistic approach in rats and humans. Abstract: It is well established that the ability to temporally organize information is fundamental to many perceptual, cognitive, and motor processes. Temporal organization is also critical to memory. In fact, since many of our memories have overlapping elements, including specific items and locations, our capacity to distinguish individual memories critically depends on remembering their unique temporal context. Unfortunately, while our understanding of how the brain processes the spatial context of memories has advanced considerably in recent years, our understanding of their temporal organization lags far behind. The overall objective of our research is to understand the fundamental neurobiological mechanisms underlying the memory for sequences of events and the memory for elapsed time. In this seminar, I will primarily focus on our recent work in rodents in which we used localized brain inactivations and single-cell recordings to help elucidate the contributions of the hippocampus and prefrontal cortex. I will also present recent findings from our parallel work in human subjects, which suggests that rats and humans use similar strategies, cognitive processes and neural circuits to remember sequences of items. I will conclude by discussing the importance of developing integrated, cross-species approaches to advance basic and clinical memory research. http://brown.edu/Departments/CLPS/events Metcalf Research Laboratory, Room 305 Dept: CLPS, Brain Science Program, Biology and Medicine, Lectures, Conferences, and Meetings, Departments, Lectures

Abstract: We are immersed in language variation---from different languages to social and regional variation within a language. But how does language variation begin? In this talk, I will report on an Agent-based modeling project that investigates the workings of linguistic variation by spreading agents armed with a simple form of concept formation and spreading them over space and time. The object of the simulations was to explore the space of possible mechanisms that could account for social variation in language; how such variation emerges; the trajectory that variation can take over time; and how such variation, in certain circumstances, can be sustained. We'll show that variation can arise in a linguistics homogeneous population that is contains segregated networks of language leaders. Along the way, we will try to demonstrate ancillary results about the wave model of linguistic change that arise from the spatial array of our agents. In sum, we will argue that understanding language variation and change must involve the interplay of psychological factors and social factors. http://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

Professor, Brown University Professor Krueger’s research interests focus on inductive reasoning in social context. This includes the areas of self-perception, intergroup perception and relations, as well as behavior in social dilemmas. He is particularly interested in social projection, which determines how and when people assume that others will behave as they themselves do. He has found that social projection can increase the accuracy of social perception, and make people more willing to cooperate with others. However, social projection also contributes to ingroup favoritism and conflict between groups. http://clps-scbb.weebly.com/ http://www.brown.edu/Departments/CLPS/events Metcalf Research Laboratory, Room 101, Friedman Auditorium Dept: CLPS, Brain Science Program, Biology and Medicine, Departments
