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.
