Generating High-Intensity, Ultrashort Optical Pulses with 2018 Nobel Laureate, Physics Professor Donna Strickland

Come to our special event with Professor Donna Strickland - one of the recipients of the Nobel Prize in Physics 2018 for developing chirped pulse amplification, with Gérard Mourou. This research paved the way for one of the most intense laser pulses ever created and has many applications in medicine and technology.

From Neanderthal to us: The incredible journey of human evolution

From Neanderthal to us: The incredible journey of human evolution with Professor Marco Peresani from the University of Ferrara in Italy. For most of the 20th century, it was thought that our closely related ancestors of Eurasia, including the Neanderthals, were not able to express symbolic behaviours comparable to us, Homo sapiens. New archaeological excavations are increasingly showing that the Neanderthals were capable of abstract thinking.
MHIQ/HPS Research Development Seminars - The Three 'Rs' and the Ego-Depletion Saga: Research, Replication, Readjustment

MHIQ/HPS Research Development Seminars - The Three 'Rs' and the Ego-Depletion Saga: Research, Replication, Readjustment

Martin S. Hagger in his presentation will introduce the ego-depletion effect and associated theoretical perspectives and mechanistic explanations. He will describe the introduction of a meta-analysis that was conducted of published laboratory experiments testing the effect using the received approach to testing the effect. The analysis yielded a medium-sized ego depletion effect (d = 0.62) across studies with substantive variability.

MHIQ/GCORE Seminar: Targeting Recovery Neurobiology Mechanisms

Professor Teng will focus his presentation on discussing new data of antioxidant efficacies resulting from targeting recovery neurobiology mechanisms including spinal cord interneurons through applying controlled drug release in an experimental SCI model. The findings may provide a novel multimodal approach to investigating and formulating treatment regimens to ultimately achieve neuroprotection for clinical SCI and neurodegenerative diseases.
