First International Symposium on Resilience Research

01. October 2015

The German Resilience Center (DRZ) invites you to its first international symposium on resilience research, taking place from Oct 1 to 2, 2015, at the Institute of Molecular Biology on the campus of the Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz. Leading scientists will present the current state of research in the field and discuss promising developments. We particularly focus on the need to obtain hard evidence for predictive factors and neurobiological and cognitive resilience mechanisms in humans with the help of prospective studies in large cohorts.

NO NIC meeting 13.06.2013

13. June 2013

The talk by Dr. Grit Hein (Laboratory for Social and Neural Systems Research and Department of Economics, University of Zurich) about

Why do we help? Uncovering the neural correlates of prosocial motives

had unfortunately to be postponed on short notice. The new date for the talk will be announced as soon as possible.

Abstract:

It is long known that prosocial behavior can be driven by different motives, for example prosocial emotions such as empathy, prosocial norms such as reciprocity, or collectivistic motives which bias helping behavior towards members of one’s own social group. Disentangling different motives with behavioral methods is difficult, because the behavioral outcome is often identical (for example the decision to help can be based on empathy or reciprocity). In my talk I will present recent work which illustrates how neuroimaging methods such as functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) can be used to investigate and disentangle the different motives which incite prosocial acts. The potentials and limitation of this approach will be discussed and important questions for future research will be outlined.

5 pm in building 701, ground floor, room 039.

11. April 2013

In our next meeting on 11th of April Dr. Marko Wilke (University Children’s Hospital Tübingen) will talk about

Applying advanced MR-methods in children: obstacles and opportunities

Abstract:

Non-invasive neuroimaging approaches such as the different flavors of magnetic resonance imaging allow to also investigate (healthy) children for research purposes. This is important as several aspects of normal and pathological brain development remain unclear, but are of high relevance far beyond the realm of pediatrics, narrowly defined. However, from task design over data acquisition to data processing and analysis, several specific aspects of “imaging children” need to be considered. This talk aims at highlighting several of these peculiarities, suggesting some solutions based on our and other group’s experience.

5 pm in building 701, ground floor, room 039.

Please contact the coordination office about project ideas, planned studies, or recent results of your ongoing studies which you would like to discuss in one of our NIC meetings so that we can compile an interesting programme. This is certainly not restricted to fMRI studies only, as the NIC is a platform for functional and structural brain imaging regardless of the methods (fMRI, structural MRI, EEG, MEG, PET, . ).

Please remember that it is mandatory to discuss your projects in a NIC meeting before you can start scanning at the TRIO. Ideally, a convenient time for a project presentation would be in the planning phase of your study.
