For Faculty and Staff
James E. Zull, professor of biology and author of The Art of Changing the Brain, continues his series on the human brain on Tuesday, July 21, with "The Essential Role of Emotion in Learning and Reasoning." The series focuses on the fact that the mind is the creation of the physical brain and hence any changes in our ways of thinking must correspond, in some way, to actual physical changes in the brain. The sessions meet each Tuesday at noon in the Herrick Room, located in the Allen Memorial Library Building, through August 4. The series is sponsored by the University Center for Innovation in Teaching and Education (UCITE). Pizza and sodas will be provided. RSVP to UCITE by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Researchers in the Case Western Reserve University Department of Cognitive Sciences are looking for Case undergraduates to participate in an IRB approved study. Participants will perform a series of primarily computer-based tasks that will require two sessions in the laboratory and a number of online questionnaires in your own time. Participants must be 18 years or older. Participants will be compensated. Learn more. E-mail email@example.com or call 368-4996 for more information.
