The Role of Tau Imaging in Neurodegenerative Disorders - CVL Lecture - Special Guest Speaker http://www.utdallas.edu/calendar/event.php?id=1220432117?WT.mc_id=CalendarRSS http://www.utdallas.edu/calendar/event.php?id=1220432117?WT.mc_id=CalendarRSS Wednesday, Feb 22
(11 a.m. - 12 p.m.) Location: The Center for Vital Longevity.

The Role of Tau Imaging in Neurodegenerative Disorders with Michael Devous, PhD, special guest speaker.

The goal of cognitive psychology and neuroscience is to understand the mind and brain, and in practice this means studying specific components of cognition, such as attention, perception, learning, and memory. Often, though, these components are studied in isolation, and we risk missing the forest for the trees. The overarching theme of our research is that cognitive processes are inherently interactive, and that exploring their behavioral and neural interactions can be an especially effective way to understand how they work.

PLEASE NOTE: Snacks will be provided.

Held in the 8th floor conference room at:
Center for Vital Longevity
1600 Viceroy Drive
Suite 800
Dallas, TX 75235

Leadership Workshop: Challenge the Process http://www.utdallas.edu/calendar/event.php?id=1220426764?WT.mc_id=CalendarRSS http://www.utdallas.edu/calendar/event.php?id=1220426764?WT.mc_id=CalendarRSS Wednesday, Feb 22
(12 p.m. - 1 p.m.)

Join Student Leadership Programs as we explore the 3rd practice of the Student Leadership Challenge Model! Attend one workshop on each of the 5 practices to become certified in the student leadership challenge model. Questions? Email leadership@utdallas.edu.

 

Challenge the Process: Change can be stressful, so leaders must also create a climate in which people are psychologically hardy—in which they feel in charge of change. Part of creating a psychologically hardy team is making sure that the magnitude of change isn’t overwhelming. Leaders provide energy and generally approach change through incremental steps and small wins. Little victories, when piled on top of each other, build confidence that even the greatest challenges can be met. In so doing they strengthen commitment to the long-term future. Extraordinary things don’t get done in huge leaps forward. They get done one step at a time.

THIS TALK HAS BEEN CANCELLED

Dr. Brendan Bowler (UT Austin)

Finding and characterizing extrasolar planets has become one of the fastest-paced and most rapidly evolving fields in modern astronomy.  Direct imaging— spatially resolving exoplanets from their host stars— is especially challenging but provides unique insight into the architectures, atmospheres, and formation of giant planets.  By exploring planetary systems from the outside-in and directly detecting photons originating in their atmospheres, imaging complements other planet-finding techniques sensitive to smaller orbital separations and enables detailed studies of atmospheric structure and composition.  In this talk I will review the field of high-contrast adaptive optics imaging with an emphasis on observational programs I am leading to test theories of planet formation, primarily by means of large surveys, planet population statistics, and near-infrared spectroscopy.  I will also outline the long-term future of the field; imaging planets has been a consistent motivating factor for the next generation of telescopes like JWST, WFIRST, and the 30 meter-class telescopes.  Eventually these facilities will pave the way for the ultimate objective: a dedicated space-based mission to image and characterize Earth analogs.

Through the Lens: Found Object/Readymade http://www.utdallas.edu/calendar/event.php?id=1220427274?WT.mc_id=CalendarRSS http://www.utdallas.edu/calendar/event.php?id=1220427274?WT.mc_id=CalendarRSS Saturday, Jan 21 - Saturday, Feb 25
(12 p.m. - 5 p.m.) Location: CentralTrak, 800 Exposition Ave, Dallas, TX 75226.

Reception: Saturday, January 21, 8:00 – 10:00 p.m.

This exhibition will explore the use of photography and video in contemporary art to re-contextualize the object through approaches adopted by Surrealist and Dada artists: the designation of the found object and the readymade.

The designation of the readymade upsets the mass-produced object’s functionality: engaging in play while disrupting work; incorporating humor; challenging the definition of art by presenting works that are ready-to-go—chosen and then recontextualized. Meanwhile, the identification of the found object connects to the unconscious, often tapping the historical context of an earlier era, the supposed recollections of a previous owner, which inform the current viewer’s awareness.   These actions address the concept of authorship, while questioning the definition of art, and the place of the object in commodity culture. The use of photography and video in contemporary art to re-present the object frames it a second time, echoing the relationship between selection and presentation of the object and image.

The exhibition features artists including Susi Brister, Francesca Brunetti, Rachel Cox, Shannon Duncan, Paho Mann, and Kristy Peet.

Gallery hours are Saturdays from noon to 5 p.m. and by special appointment.
