Welcome to the research seminar about neuroimaging of episodic memory with Emrah Düzel, professor in cognitive neuroscience at the institute of cognitive neuroscience, UCL, and Simona Ghetti, professor of psychology at the University of California, Davis.

Spatial navigation

Thomas Wolbers is Professor for Ageing & Cognition Research Group at the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases (DZNE) in Magdeburg, Germany. His research is focusing on mechanisms of normal and pathological aging in brain structures that are key for spatial navigation. We are lucky to have him here talking about his research in this field.

Ta vare på hjernen!

A healthy brain is essential to enjoy a productive human life. How can we keep our brain healthy? How does our environment affect our brain throughout life? How can we optimize our brain function? Brain health researchers in the EU-funded Lifebrain project will present some of their findings during the public lecture in Norwegian and in English.

Kristine Beate Walhovd, Professor, Centre for Lifespan Changes in Brain and Cognition, University of Oslo. Coordinator of the Lifebrain project. She will discuss why is it important to take care of our brain all along the lifespan (Lecture in Norwegian).

Sana Suri, Post-doc researcher, University of Oxford/Lifebrain project. Sana will discuss the opportunities and challenges an aging population may bring, how risk factors including high blood pressure can accelerate brain aging, and how physical activity can help promote healthy brain aging. (Lecture in English).

Oslo PsychScience 2018

A matter of perspective in time

LCBC hosted a lunch meeting with Bård Harstad from UiO’s Department of Economics. Bård gave us an insightful and very entertaining lecture entitled “Time-inconsistent preferences in economics and policy”. How do we perceive the costs relative to the benefits of any given situation as a function of time? Are we adept at investing time and effort in long-term goals that give a delayed pay-off when the perceived cost of such decisions is more immediate? And if something is costly today, does it then pay to postpone until tomorrow?

Bård’s research highlights a key factor that needs to be taken into account when we consider how we do and should make decisions. Namely, time. A major issue is time-inconsistency in decision-making. When closer in time, perceived costs often outweigh perceived benefits in the long-term, precisely because they are in the long-term, and because the costs are not. This has far-reaching consequences, helping us understand a key influence as to why people may not save much or may eat too unhealthily, but also economic-related decision-making such as why greener environmental policies are often harder and take far more time to push through. In the latter scenario, the significant costs involved in investing in a new infrastructure for greener energy are often perceived to outweigh the long-term benefits reaped by future generations, despite these benefits actually being far greater.

The key may be to recognise that time is a factor that will ubiquitously and continually change our perception of a situation. According to Bård, one should therefore pre-commit to making later changes, because the cost will always be considered greater in the present than in the future.

From big data to individual psychopathology

Ole Andreassen from the Norwegian Institute for Mental Disoders Research (NORMENT) came in to the LCBC offices to give us a presentation on how they use big datasets to understand mental disorders.
