2nd meeting of the SINAPSE Psychology group

2nd meeting of the SINAPSE Psychology group, Glasgow, 8 May 2018

SINAPSE researchers with a common interest in cognitive neuroimaging gathered at the University of Glasgow to present and discuss recent findings and work in progress. The programme began with a welcome from Psychology Deputy Lead Dr Donald Lyall, who gave an overview of the topic group infrastructure - including our website Member Area (log-in required) and SINAPSE-PSYCH mailing list - and reminded attendees about benefits of SINAPSE membership such as access to the PEER and PECRE funding schemes.

The morning session was kicked off by a presentation from Dr Makoto Uji on an fMRI study of binocular depth perception and the qualitative impression of stereopsis, followed by a presentation from Dr Blair Saunders on evaluating the reproducibility of an association between anxiety and the error-related negativity ERP component. External invited speaker Dr Matthias Gruber from Cardiff University then spoke about his research using MRI and EEG to investigate how motivational states contribute to memory enhancement.

After lunch were two postgraduate student presentations on stroke research, first from Bogna Drozdowska about the Assessing Post-stroke Psychology Longitudinal Evaluation (APPLE) study, and then from Annick Wyss about a project investigating the effect of changes in blood pressure and neuroimaging markers on cognition after stroke. The afternoon session was wrapped up by internal invited speaker Dr Simon Cox who spoke about structural and diffusion MRI research in the Lothian Birth Cohort 1936 and UK Biobank. Although the Psychology group meeting this year did not include a beach walk, its proximity to the pubs of Ashton Lane provided an equally suitable setting for networking at the end of the day.

 

All researchers from around Scotland who use imaging methods (including MRI, fMRI, EEG, and MEG) in Psychology research are welcome to join us!
