Lecture/Seminar The Eye of the Storm: The Story of An Elusive Executive Control Construct and the Attempts to Capture Its Soul 2012-03-02 15:00:00
Description

Speaker: Mauricio Garcia-Barrera, Dept. of Psychology, UVic
 

The elusive term "Executive Function (EF)" has remained controversial in neuropsychology, and sounded theoretical models that attempt to define it have failed during their validation efforts.  As an exception, parsimonious statistical approaches using latent variables have prevailed and succeeded to considerable extent. Dr. Garcia-Barrera proposed INTERACT, an extension of Miyake et al's (2000) three-component approach to examine EFs, in which the interactions between five specific executive systems permit the emergence of executive control. Therefore, EFs are defined theoretically not only as a series of unitary byproducts of these interactions, but also in terms of a diversity of distinguishable functional systems: problem representation, updating working memory, and attentional-, emotional- and inhibitory control. This presentation aims to introduce you to the derivation of such theory and to share the results of Jeff Frazer’s dissertation, a doctoral candidate in Psychology who examined INTERACT’s validity as a viable model of EF.

Film People of a Feather 2012-03-02 15:00:00
Description

Director: Joel Heath Canada, 2011, 90 min; English Inuktitut with subtitles
WINNER! Environmental Film Audience Award – Vancouver International Film Festival
Utilizing astonishing time-lapse photography captured over seven years, Joel Heath illustrates how a traditional way of life is being ravaged by environmental change. On Hudson Bay's isolated Belcher Islands, the community of Sanikiluaq has long relied upon the eider duck and their down feathers (the warmest in the world) for survival. However, the runoff from nearby hydroelectric dams has resulted in an increasingly volatile ecosystem and triggered massive die-offs in the ducks. Feather certifies that ecologist-turned-documentarian Heath is a born filmmaker. –Vancouver International Film Festival
