27 February, 2018 - UCL Science Society meeting

Time: 18:00:00 - 19:00:00

Refreshments at 17.30. Lecture followed by dinner for members and guests at 7pm. Prof Geraint Rees. Dean of the UCL Faculty of Life Sciences, will speak on: The conscious phenotype: Consciousness is central to the human condition, furnishing us with phenomenal awareness of the external world and the ability to reflect upon our own thoughts and experiences. Almost half our communication concerns the contents of our thoughts and experiences. The shared language we use to do this obscures the recent realization that there is substantial variability in how different people experience the same physical environment. Moreover, key aspects of this variability in conscious experience are heritable, suggesting a conscious phenotype with adaptive significance. In this talk I will explore the nature of individual differences in conscious perception and their neural basis, focusing on both structure and function of the human brain.

6 March, 2018 - Experimental Psychology Seminar - "Visual stimulus processing and spatial memory in the retrosplenial cortex"

Time: 13:00:00 - 14:00:00

Speaker: Frank Sengpiel, University of Cardiff The retrosplenial cortex (RSC) has been shown to be involved in a number of cognitive functions, in particular episodic memory and navigation, but relatively little is known about responses at the neuronal level. We have analysed activity in the RSC of awake mice to simple visual stimuli using two-photon calcium imaging and found that single cells respond in a coarse spatially but not orientation selective manner. Interestingly, activity was strongly modulated by the animals’ locomotion, even in complete darkness. We further investigated the pattern of activity in RSC as mice were trained on a spatial memory task and found evidence for the formation of a memory engram. The stability of this engram was linked to the animals’ performance upon re-exposure to the task.

Organised by UCL Urban Laboratory

Urban Lab Films present one of the first UK screenings of 'Natura Urbana: The Brachen of Berlin' (UK/Germany, 72 mins) by Matthew Gandy. The prize-winning documentary tells the post-war history of Berlin through its plants, as we encounter an extraordinary variety of spontaneous vegetation from all over the world that has sprouted along railway lines, on street corners, and in the distinctive Brachen of Berlin. The changing vegetation serves as a parallel history to war-time destruction, geopolitical division, and the newest phase of urban transformation. In addition to stunning urban landscapes, and unknown or rarely seen archive footage, the film features interviews with leading cultural and scientific figures from Berlin such as the botanist Herbert Sukopp and the actor and writer Hanns Zischler. Tickets to the screening will be made available via the registration link from 6pm on Thursday 15 February.

13 March, 2018 - Experimental Psychology Seminar - "Human face processing in orientation and spatial frequency domains"

Time: 13:00:00 - 14:00:00

Speaker: Valerie Goffaux (Universite Catholique de Louvain, Belgium) Face perception results from a hierarchical processing chain in the ventral pathway, with increasingly complex computations performed as visual signals proceed from primary to high-level regions. Research in the field addresses how facial features (e.g., the eyes) are integrated at high-level stages of processing to enable e.g. identity recognition. The contribution of primary visual cues such as orientation and spatial frequency is often ignored. I will present psychophysics, developmental, EEG and neuroimaging data demonstrating that core aspects of high-level face processing are tuned to selective orientation and spatial frequency ranges. Recent findings of our lab further indicate that the primary encoding of orientation itself is influenced by the high-level structure of the (face) image.

15 March, 2018 - Algorithms and Fairness: What are the limits of predictive algorithms in public policy?

Time: 13:30:00 - 17:00:00

Algorithms are increasingly used to make decisions affecting our lives, but can we ensure machine-generated decisions are fair? Algorithms have long been used in the private sector to make marketing or finance decisions. As large-scale data becomes available in the public sector, these techniques are increasingly being deployed in areas as diverse as education, criminal justice or health. If these algorithms are based on data which misrepresents specific groups of people, then their use could widen social inequalities or breach equality laws. We have organised a workshop, funded by UCL Grand Challenges, to bring interested parties together, within and beyond UCL, to develop an interdisciplinary research agenda. The workshop will be a combination of invited talks and group discussion, appropriate for academics, policy makers and doctoral students.

19 March, 2018 - NeuroAI - Forging Closer Links Between Neuroscience and Machine Learning

Time: 13:00:00 - 18:00:00

The last five years have seen huge advances in the capability of machine learning - particularly deep learning and deep RL ¬approaches that have in part been informed by our increased understanding of the brain. In turn these tools provide a powerful means to explore how information is processed in the brain ¬ for example, mapping sensory data to neural representations, or representations to behaviour. For these reasons we feel there are real benefits to be realised from developing close relationships between experimental and theoretical neuroscientists, and computer scientists. The UCL Neuroscience Domain and CoMPLEX are hosting a workshop to bring together speakers from across the spectrum of NeuroAI will present talks with the aim of fostering collaborations and identifying the next steps necessary to develop this exciting field.

1 May, 2018 - How can I facilitate meaningful conversations with stakeholders?

Time: 10:00:00 - 11:30:00

At the core of Public Engagement (PE) and Patient and Public Involvement (PPI) is conversation. We believe that research should include public and patient voices, and that this inclusion leads to better outcomes for all. Moving from that belief to actually facilitating conversations can be quite a leap, particularly for those without training or experience. In this session, we will interrogate different ways of facilitating meaningful conversations with public and patient groups, and other key stakeholder groups. We will begin the session with some brief case studies, leading to conversations wherein all attending can discuss and experiment with facilitation techniques. This is part of a series of events to support those across the UCL School of Life and Medical Sciences (SLMS) working in Public Engagement and Patient and Public Involvement. These take place regularly, focussing on different topics each time.
