Additional Info
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.
