Brain and Heart: Do they dance?
Dr. Georg Northoff
Date & Time
Wednesday October 4th, 2017 / 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
The Royal, Room 1424
1145 Carling Ave
Dr. Georg Northoff’s research is based on
recent imaging studies that suggest that
cortical midline structures (CMS) may be
involved in the neural processing of self. His
work focuses on the relationship between
CMS, emotional processing, and self-related
processing in both healthy and psychiatric
subjects using various imaging techniques
such as fMRI and PET. His research also
investigates the biochemical underpinnings
and neurochemical mechanisms underlying
neural activity changes during consciousness
and the experience of self, and he tries to link
them with observations at the psychological
level. The combination of imaging,
translational studies, network modelling and
neuromonitoring may open the door for the
development of reliable diagnostic markers
and novel therapeutic interventions. Dr.
Northoff is currently Canada Research Chair
in Mind, Brain Imaging and Neuroethics as
well as a Joint Professor in the Department
of Psychology, Faculty of Arts and Social
Sciences at Carleton University.
Starting this month we will change the format of the lecture series slightly. The seminar will run from 4-4:40pm (talk and question period). Following the talk we will have a 20-30 minute meeting for current and prospective facility users.
