23 January, 2018 - Assessing the Green Finance Boom: Prospects for a Market-led Sustainable Future?

Time: 18:15:00 - 19:30:00

Green finance now forms a key plank of the UK finance industry’s contribution to the campaign against climate change. There has been a huge global demand for green bonds, with the market raising $95bn in 2016 and on track to reach issuance of $123bn in 2017, according to Bloomberg. It has prominent supporters, including the Bank of England governor, Mark Carney, who recently claimed that “Green finance is a major opportunity…[increasing] the prospects for an environmentally sustainable recovery in global growth.” The idea is a simple one: to make and win the business case for sustainable investments that generate environmental benefits, leading to a low-carbon, climate resilient and resource-efficient economy. This event comes at an exciting time – with green finance taking off in the UK. For its supporters, this rapid growth in sustainable investment is cause for celebration. However, its expansion also invites reflection on what exactly constitutes ‘green’ finance? This public panel

6 February, 2018 - Experimental Psychology Seminar - "Cooperation in large-scale human societies — What, if anything, makes it unique, and how did it evolve?"

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

Speaker: Simon T. Powers, School of Computing, Edinburgh Napier University There is much controversy about whether the cooperation underlying the functioning of human societies is explained by self-interest. Confusion over this has frustrated the understanding of how large-scale societies could ever have arisen and been maintained. To clarify this situation, I will present a conceptual framework showing that two factors need to be disentangled and resolved. First, how small- and large-scale societies differ in cooperation needs to be ascertained. Second, whether the decision-making mechanisms used by individuals are incentive-driven and/or domain-general needs to be determined. I will use this framework to review the literature on cooperation across societal scales and decision-making mechanisms. This then allows us to delineate between the cultural group selection and the institutional-path hypotheses for explaining the origin of large-scale cooperative societies.

14 February, 2018 - Brain networks in cognitive control - Prof John Duncan

Time: 16:00:00 - 17:00:00

UCL Centre for Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience Seminars. Prof John Duncan, University of Cambridge: “Brain networks in cognitive control” Abstract: Brain imaging shows two well-known networks involved in cognitive control – a multiple-demand or MD network, whose activity usually increases with increased task demand, and a default-mode network (DMN), especially active during rest. Here I shall discuss their complementary contributions to cognitive control, presenting a combination of behavioural, anatomical and imaging data. The MD system, I suggest, is involved in splitting complex problems into fine-grained, focused parts or attentional episodes, a function closely related to fluid intelligence. In contrast, the DMN encodes spatial, temporal and other aspects of broad context, providing the setting for more focused cognitive operations. All welcome to attend.

19 February, 2018 - Visible Hands: Government Regulation and International Business Responsibility

Time: 18:15:00 - 19:30:00

Summary A growing number of states are regulating the corporate social responsibility (CSR) of domestic multinational corporations relating to overseas subsidiaries and suppliers. Jette Steen Knudsen presents a new framework for analysing government–CSR relations: direct and indirect policies for CSR. Arguing that existing research on CSR regulation fails to address the growing role of the state in shaping the international practices of multinational corporations, she provides insight into the CSR issues that are addressed by government policies. Drawing on case studies, Knudsen analyses three key examples of CSR: non-financial reporting, ethical trade and tax transparency in extractive industries.

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.

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.

23 March, 2018 - UCL-TB World TB Day Symposium

Time: -

On 24 March, the world commemorates the day in 1882 when Dr Robert Koch announced his discovery of Mycobacterium tuberculosis. UCL-TB takes this opportunity each year to highlight contemporary research innovation and future challenges in a one-day symposium co-organised by LSHTM and UCL. Our theme for World TB Day 2018 is the challenge of antimicrobial resistant TB, and will include a debate that tackles the question: ‘Do we need host-directed therapy if we have a universal drug regimen?’ By including presentations that cover a diverse range of topics (including: laboratory sciences, epidemiology, health economics, policy research and modelling) from world leaders in their field, we aim to encourage discussion and debate around some of the most important themes in our fight against TB. Tickets are free of charge but limited, so do please book early to guarantee your place.
