General Meeting 1B

 7:30 pm | Location: CRA 12.120

Join us for socialization, NSA updates, and a fun and educational journal club presented by our very own Public Relations officer, Suraiya Alam! In her own words, here's a bit more about the compelling presentaion you can expect:

 

In the season of Saint Valentine, we are reminded of love at every corner. However, even with the tradition of dedicating an entire day a year to romance, the effects of the human pair-bonded state of “romantic love” on cognitive function still remain relatively unexplored. Many theories suggest that a state of love may improve mentalizing abilities. On the other hand, recent fMRI research on individuals who are in love suggests that several brain regions associated with mentalizing may be “deactivated” during the presentation of a love prime. How does love really affect our cognition? Come find out in this journal club!
