[Illinois] Beckman Graduate Seminar: Frontoparietal traffic signals: A fast optical imaging study of preparatory dynamics in response mode switching
20 Jun 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Pauline L. Baniqued
Coordination between networks of brain regions is important for optimal cognitive performance, especially in attention demanding tasks. With the event-related optical signal (EROS; a measure of changes in optical scattering due to neuronal activity) we can characterize rapidly evolving network...
[Illinois] Beckman Graduate Seminar: Graphene Atomic Shrink Wrap for Nanosandwiching Biomolecules
20 Jun 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Joshua D. Wood
Graphene, a two-dimensional honeycomb sheet of carbon atoms, has been hotly scrutinized for its desirable electronic applications. Still, graphene has hardly been used as an atomically thin membrane. Graphene membranes are conformal to surfaces, entrapping liquids, gases, and nanoparticles. Here,...
[Illinois] Beckman Graduate Seminar: Neural Correlates of Externally and Internally Originating Emotional Distraction Effects on Working Memory
20 Jun 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Alexandru D. Iordan
Balanced emotion-cognition interactions are critical for healthy functioning. Clinical studies suggest that symptoms of impaired executive control and enhanced emotional distractibility observed in affective disorders are linked to dysfunctional interactions between a dorsal executive system and...
