SEMINAR: In Sync: Music, Synchrony, and Cognition

PRESENTED BY: Dr Alexander Khalil, Dept of Music, University College Cork, Cork.

BIOGRAPHY:

Alexander Khalil is an ethnomusicologist and cognitive scientist specializing in music learning and transmission, musicality in human interaction, and the perception of time. Informed by his long experience as a chanter in the Greek Orthodox tradition, his ethnographic work investigates timing and temporality amongst chanters both at ancient centers of the tradition, such as Constantinople (present-day Istanbul), and in diaspora. Khalil's work in cognitive science connects the ability to synchronize—or co-process time—rhythmically with other cognitive skills such as attention behaviour and so links the practice of music to broader areas of cognition. Khalil received his doctorate in music at the University of California, San Diego in 2009. Upon completing his Ph.D., Khalil joined the department of Cognitive Science at UCSD as a postdoctoral scholar and fellow at the Temporal Dynamics of Learning Center, a National Science Foundation Science of Learning Center. In 2014 he joined the Institute for Neural Computation, also based at UCSD, as a project scientist where he developed methods for EEG recording with multiple people, also known as “hyperscanning”, in ecological environments. 

WHEN: Monday 1st April 2019. 4.00-5.00pm

WHERE: Room 405 Western Gateway Building.

SEMINAR:THE GAPOSCHKIN CHANDELIER
PRESENTED BY: Dr Sinéad Ryan, Education & Public Engagement Office, Irish Photonic Integration Centre (IPIC),Tyndall National Institute
WHEN: Tuesday 20th of November 2018. 4.00-5.00pm
WHERE: LG52, Cavanagh Pharmacy Building
 
ALL WELCOME
 
ABOUT: Artist Emer O’Boyle has been commissioned by IPIC to build The Gaposchkin Chandelier.  This installation will be exhibited in The Lewis Glucksman Gallery in UCC as part of their upcoming exhibition 'Prism: The Art & Science of Light' that will open to the public on 1st December 2018.

The Chandelier is inspired by Cecilia Payne Gaposchkin, who in 1925, discovered what stars are made of by observing the absorption lines in the spectrum of light they emit. Her profound discovery would change how we understand the physical universe forever...

Based on the spectrum of light from our nearest star, the Sun, The Gaposchkin Chandelier will be made with 603 test tubes each containing a symbolic absorption line. The absorption lines say 'I can see a gender equal society' and mark UCC's commitment to addressing gender representation in STEM. Through an increase in colour over time, it will reflect our progress towards having 50% female researcher representation across all levels, from PhDs right through to Professors. We are looking for 603 staff and students to add their signature to these absorption lines which will be stored in one of the test tubes and ultimately form part of the The Gaposchkin Chandelier.

At Tuesday’s seminar, you are invited to hear a brief overview of the project.  You will then have the opportunity to add your signature to an absorption line which will permanently form a part of The Chandelier.

SEMINAR: Intestine-Chip:A New Model to Understand the Role of the Intestinal Epithelium in IBD by Combining Microengineering Technology and iPSC-derived Human Intestinal Organoid
PRESENTED BY: Dr Robert Barrett, PhD,Regenerative Medicine Institute,Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Los Angeles, USA.
BIOGRAPHY: Dr Robert Barrett: The research of Dr Robert Barrett, PhD, focuses on learning about the intestinal epithelium both in healthy individuals and those suffering from inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). The Barrett Lab uses human intestinal organoid tissue derived from induced pluripotent stem cells and small microengineering technology to assess how genetics and environmental factors can influence the functioning of this epithelium. These studies may ultimately lead to new insights into the pathogenesis of IBD.
WHEN: Tuesday 06th of November 2018. 4.00-5.00pm
WHERE: Room 405 Western Gateway Building.
 
ALL WELCOME
