Faculty members Sid Segalowitz and Jane Dywan, post doc Diane Santesso, and six graduate students from the Brock University Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience Laboratory attended the 49th annual meeting of the Society for Psychophysiological Research in Berlin, Germany, Oct. 21 to 24. While there, they hosted two symposia and made a number of presentations:
Symposium #1: The N170s Special Relation with Face Perception: How, Why and Where?
(Chair: Sidney J. Segalowitz) including talks: James Desjardins and Sidney J. Segalowitz: “Deconstructing the P1 and N170 Face-Effect Using Independent Component Analysis”; Xin Zheng, Mark D. Vida, Catherine J. Mondloch and Sidney J. Segalowitz: “The N170 ERP Relates to Both Featural and Configural Information Important for Face Processing”
Symposium #2: The Psychophysiology of Developmental Psychopathology
(Chair: Diane L. Santesso Discussant: Sidney J. Segalowitz) including talks by Diane L. Santesso, Angela Dzyundzyak and Sidney J. Segalowitz: “The Relation of Punishment Sensitivity to ACC Activation in an ERP Gambling Paradigm is Greater in Younger Adolescents”
