Open to the public

/ Saturday

8:30am-5:00pm

Events in the past decade seem to indicate that democracy in many parts of the world is in peril. In the United States, voter ID laws and extra legal tactics work to suppress voter turnout and political actors make decisions based on what might effect their re-election rather than what is best for their country. American distrust of government, and a growing sense of white resentment have widened divisions among an already fractured electorate, while racism and xenophobia seem to be growing. Moreover, Russian hackers appear to have weaponized racism in a way that affected the outcome of the US elections.

Brain Awareness Week: What we think, we become: A neuroscientist’s understanding: a lecture by Dr. Andre Fenton

Titsworth Marjorie Leff Miller ’53 Lecture Hall

Open to the public

/ Monday

12:00pm-1:30pm

Memories are the imprints that experience leaves in the brain in defining knowledge, mental competence, and, in part, our individuality. In this lecture, Dr. Fenton will explain the biological basis of how experience alters brain function-breakthroughs that will eventually have a remarkable impact on our lives. 

Dr. Andre Fenton is a professor of Neural Science at New York University. He studies how brains store experiences as memories, and how the expression of knowledge activates information that is relevant without activating what is irrelevant. Dr. Fenton and colleagues identified PKMzeta as the first molecule that maintains the persistence of memories in the brain, a discovery recognized by Science Magazine as one of the 10 most important breakthroughs in all of science and technology published in 2006. André founded Bio-Signal Group Corp., which developed and commercialized an FDA-approved portable, wireless, and easy to use platform for obtaining medical quality EEGs for emergency medicine, sports, space exploration, and under served clinics in Africa.

Brain Awareness Week: Jessica Cloud ’18 Lecture—Using Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) at Sarah Lawrence College: An Introduction to Student-Accessible fMRI Techniques and Methodologies

Science Center 103

Open to the public

/ Tuesday

12:30pm-1:30pm

Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) is an essential methodology in the field of psychology and neurobiology, allowing researchers to visualize distinct neural correlates of behaviors and the ways in which neuronal networks interact during tasks. For undergraduates, however, this technology is often inaccessible, both in terms of understanding the techniques behind fMRI imaging and in utilizing fMRI images for research. Efforts of research groups across the country have helped to rectify this lack of access through online databases of fMRI images; access to these images allows for countless research opportunities in the areas of anxiety, epilepsy, vision loss, dementia/Alzheimer’s, adolescent/adult depression and anxiety, and others. Jessica Cloud ’18 will review ways in which undergraduates and other researchers without access to fMRI machinery can perform research using fMRI images and discuss ongoing cognition research at Sarah Lawrence College that utilizes these techniques.
