The Mind Research Network (MRN) presents a lecture by Colin G. DeYoung, "Neural and Genetic Mechanisms in Aggression, Impulsivity and Other Externalizing Behaviors," on Friday, Sept. 10, at 11:30 a.m. in the MRN large conference room in the Pete and Nancy Domenici Hall. A light lunch will be served.
Colin G. DeYoung, an assistant professor in psychology at the University of Minnesota will discuss how the trait of externalizing represents the shared risk for aggression, impulsivity, antisocial behavior and drug abuse. His research focused on these mechanisms, with a particular emphasis on the cognitive deficits that are associated with externalizing.
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.
