The Mind Research Network (MRN) presents a lecture by Adam K. Anderson, "Form and Function in the Emotions," on Friday, Oct. 8, at 11:45 in the MRN large conference room in the Pete and Nancy Domenici Hall. A light lunch will be served.
Anderson, an associate professor and Canada Research Chair in Affective Neuroscience in the Department of Psychology, University of Toronto, was recipient of the 2009 American Psychological Association Award for Distinguished Scientific Early Career Contributions to Psychology. Anderson was cited for "his outstanding contribution to understanding the representation of emotion and its influence on cognition." He discusses his findings at MRN and explains why understanding emotions and their expression are important in neuroscience discovery.
MRN, located at the University of New Mexico, is an independent non-profit organization dedicated to advancing the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness and other brain disorders.
MRN is an interdisciplinary association of scientists who collaborate with researchers at universities, national laboratories and research centers around the world. The organization is focused on imaging and genetics technology and its emergence as an integral element of neuroscience investigation.
