Os reenviamos un mensaje de nuestra compañera Ruth de Diego Balaguer sobre el próximo CBC Seminar.
La Junta Directiva de la SEPEX
We have the pleasure to announce the next online CBC Seminar:
FRIDAY 30th, at 12h
from University of Birmingham
invited by Salvador Soto-Faraco and Irene Vigué-Guix,
will give a talk entitled
The potential of Brain Rhythms to gauge the resiliency and vulnerability of an individual to mental illness
Zoom link: TBD
Abstract: The ongoing EEG contains rhythmic activity produced by various frequency-specific networks in the brain. These rhythms have been shown in previous work to capture the functional architecture of the brain at rest as well as during cognition. The term ‘resiliency’ in psychological sciences refers to an individual’s ability to successfully adapt/recover from an adverse event. Conversely, the term ‘vulnerability’ refers to factors that make someone at risk or predisposed to illness. In the current talk, I will present findings from both the typically healthy as well as different clinical populations that specific characteristics of brain rhythms, both at rest and during specific tasks can be used to gauge: 1) the resiliency of individuals to developing pain 2) their vulnerability to Alzheimer’s dementia, and 3) the impact of inflammation on cognitive function. I will also discuss the possible future direction of this research with regards to both basic science and translational endeavours.
We look forward to seeing you all there!
