Liverpool Neuroscience Group hosted the 5th Liverpool Neuroscience Day in partnership with Liverpool John Moores University, the University of Liverpool and The Walton Centre.
The meeting took place on Friday 15th June 2018 at the Johnson Foundation Auditorium in LJMU’s award-winning John Lennon Art and Design Building.
Alexithymia and atypical interoception in Autism Spectrum Disorder. Dr Geoff Bird. University of Oxford. Host: Dr Dave Moore Room: TRB 1.44
A comprehensive introduction to structural and functional neuroanatomy
This highly popular three-day course has been running since 2007 and provides a comprehensive introduction to structural, functional and radiological brain anatomy, providing delegates with a solid, three-dimensional understanding of the human brain and its relationship to cross-sectional (MRI) anatomy.
Prof. Kyle Cave, University of Massachusetts:
We are very good at searching for a visual object in a complex scene when we know its colour, because we can quickly guide our eyes and our attention to locations in the scene that have that colour. When we search for either of two different targets, however, we do not always search efficiently, and thus took longer to find the target. In a series of experiments, we found that subjects searching for two different colours often fixated colours that were very different from either target.
The kynurenine pathway and neurodegeneration: from mechanisms to therapeutics. Professor Flaviano Giorgini, University of Leicester. Host: Dr Mirko Pegoraro Room: TRB 1.45
This exciting and popular 2-day course focuses on the the anatomy of the “limbic” brain including the topography and functional anatomy of the limbic lobe, hippocampus, amygdala and ventral striatum – and clearly explains notoriously confusing topics such as the basal forebrain, septal area, habenula, olfactory areas, extended amygdala.
