Psychology Department Spring Speaker Series

11:00 am - 1:00 pm - Sierra Hall 322

New Research on Beliefs about Repressed Memories and False Memories

In this talk the author discusses the phenomena known as the memory wars, and presents on two of his recently published studies. The first part of the talk deals with an apparent gap in beliefs between researchers and practitioners about whether repressed memories happen and can be retrieved in therapy accurately. The second part of the talk deals with what could possibly explain some of the more unusual memories that have been generated in therapies that try to retrieve repressed memories. The author presents data showing that even when you bend over backwards to find participants that are most likely not to be susceptible to false memories, they in fact are. This could be seen as what Karl Popper would have called a "risky experiment"of memory distortion paradigms, an approach of attempted falsification that Popper argued is important in science.

“The Good News on Global Violence Reduction, the Bad News on America, and How Interfaith Relations Can Help Shape our Future”

Presented by Professor Marc Gopin

Is violence in America an inevitable part of American life?

Although media reports suggest otherwise, the scientific reality is that violence across the globe has been plummeting in recent decades. Why and how is this happening? Research is showing that our values, attitudes, and thoughts have a great deal to do with our evolution away from violence. Dr. Marc Gopin will help us explore how our practice of and thought about Judaism can affect our global future.

Marc Gopin (Ph.D., Ethics, Brandeis University) is the Director of the Center for World Religions, Diplomacy and Conflict Resolution and the James H. Laue Professor at the School for Conflict Analysis and Resolution at George Mason University in Arlington, Virginia. He was ordained rabbi at Yeshiva University and is the author of five books.

Please call (818) 677-4724 or email jewish.studies@csun.edu to reserve a seat.

Thursday, February 20 5:00 pm - Friday, February 21 6:00 pm - University Student Union Theatre
http://hiphopthinktank13.org

The Hip-Hop Think Tank, Department of Pan African Studies, and numerous departments and campus units invite the CSUN campus community to its biennial conference titled, "Bridging the Gaps: Hip-Hop in the Age of Mass Incarceration and Deportation," scheduled for February 20-21, 2014 at CSUN.

"Bridging the Gaps" will bring together members of the Civil Rights, Black, and Brown Power movements with Hip Hop scholars, activists, and artists along with immigrants rights organizations to explore how they are responding to the prison industrial complex, war on drugs, anti-immigration legislation, and the overall criminalization of communities of color. By illustrating the interconnections between "Stop and Frisk" in New York City, gang injunctions in Los Angeles, the "Papers Please" provisions in Arizona, South Carolina, and elsewhere, and the growing militarization of the US-Mexico border, the conference will highlight the denial of human rights experienced by each of these diverse communities, utilizing Hip-Hop social activism as our primary language.

The two-day conference begins with an opening reception, film festival, and talk by Hip-Hop activist and 2008 Vice Presidential candidate for the Green Party, Rosa Clemente, on Thursday, February 20th in the USU Theater from 5-10pm. On Friday, February 21st, the conference continues at 9am with an opening keynote by Dr. Victor Rios, Professor of Sociology at UC Santa Barbara and author of Punished: Policing the Lives of Black and Latino Boys. The day will continue with a series of panels and workshops with Hip-Hop scholars, activists, artists, and community organizations, such as Dr. Shana Redmond (USC), Dr. Melina Abdullah (CSULA), Dr. Denise Sandoval (CSUN), Boots Riley, Olmeca, Cihuatl Ce, Jasiri X, Luis Rodriguez, the Gr818ers, the Pico Youth and Family Center, Youth Justice Coalition, CURB, Tia Chucha's and many others. The conference culminates with a keynote address by Elaine Brown, former chair of the Black Panther Party, followed by a closing reception and open mic celebration. We sincerely hope that you will join us for this amazing conference.

Psychology Department Spring Speaker Series

12:00 pm - 1:00 pm - Sierra Hall 322

The Psychology Department would like to invite students and faculty to a presentation delivered by Nikki Sullivan this Friday as part of the Psychology Department Spring Speaker Series. Nikki is a doctoral candidate at Caltech where she works with Professor Antonio Rangel. Nikki's research concerns neuroeconomic decision making.

Many choices in life have two features: trade-offs and future consequences. For example, selecting carrots instead of a brownie may require self-control, but will pay off in the long run. Similar trade-offs exist when saving for retirement. How and why some individuals are better at these choices than others? This talk will present two studies in two domains requiring control: dietary and inter-temporal choice. In the first study, we combine a dietary choice task with a novel form of computer mouse tracking. This allows us to pinpoint when different attributes of the choice (such as the taste and healthiness of the foods) are being integrated into the choice processes with millisecond temporal resolution. We find that 20 - 40% of observed individual differences in self-control ability can be explained by differences in the relative speed with which taste and health attributes are processed. In the second study, we compare brain activity during an inter-temporal choice task across adolescent, adult, and elderly age groups to understand how monetary self-control changes with age. We find that discounting decreases monotonically with age, and that age-related changes in brain structure and functional activation and connectivity help explain this age-related increase in control.
