III Conference «Social Sciences & Health Innovations: Making Health Public»

III conference «Social Sciences & Health Innovations: Making Health Public» will be held at Tomsk State University on 22-24 May 2017 in Tomsk, Russia.

Social sciences play a central role in analysing public health innovations’ dynamics and for understanding the corresponding challenges. This conference examines the complexities of making health public by engaging the perspectives of the social sciences, including science and technology studies (STS), medical anthropology, sociology and history. Furthermore, it is meant to serve as a platform to facilitate dialogue between social and biomedical scientists, public health professionals and policy makers, and for engagement between scholars and practitioners working in the field of health innovations in the post-Soviet region and globally. The conference considers public health-related innovations on different levels (from the community level to national programmes and global efforts) and of different kinds (conceptual, organisational, political).

Open Lecture "Education 5.0, towards the Anthropocene?" by Nicolas Buchoud
April 7th 2017, Open Lecture "Education 5.0, towards the Anthropocene?" by Nicolas Buchoud, Director, Centre for Urban Studies and Regional Development (CUR).

We are all witnessing and contributing to a great transition age. Following the development of the internet (1.0), the development of social networks has been faster (2.0). Recently, the era of connected objects or internet of things (IoT) has started (3.0). The change is now affecting industrial structures (4.0), while in 2016 a «Society 5.0» initiative was born. Moving from the information society to the Super Smart Society, the future might then be about connecting IoT, AI (artificial intelligence), robots and life science altogether.

But is this the only way forward?

In an era of unprecedented urbanisation and impact of human activities on the biosphere, described as the Anthropocene, how will human and social sciences meet digital challenges? Are universities still the place to build and share the knowledge bricks of the 21st century? And what if, in parallel to the development of a “New Silk Road”, Siberia played the host for a new version of the “Great Northern Expeditions” and become a distinctive cradle of progress for our times?

Location: Tomsk State University, Conference Hall, TSU Scientific Library (34a Lenina Pr., Tomsk).

Open Lecture “The promises and challenges of using transcranial electrical current stimulation to modulate social processing abilities”

March 30, 2017 Open Lecture “The promises and challenges of using transcranial electrical current stimulation to modulate social processing abilities” by Dr Michael Banissy (Psychology Department, Goldsmiths, University of London, UK)

The International Centre for Research in Human Development invites TSU undergraduates , MSc and PhD students and lecturers from different academic backgrounds to the open lecture “The promises and challenges of using transcranial electrical current stimulation to modulate social processing abilities” by Dr Michael Banissy (Department of Psychology, Goldsmiths, University of London, UK).

Lector: Dr Michael Banissy, Director of the Non-Invasive Brain Stimulation Laboratory, Department of Psychology, Goldsmiths, University of London

Title: “The promises and challenges of using transcranial electrical current stimulation to modulate social processing abilities”

Abstract:

Our ability to successfully perceive and use social signals is a critical feature of our everyday lives. Difficulties in perceiving social cues contribute to deficits in communication and social competence, reduced quality of life, and social isolation. Given this, techniques that enhance social perception could be valuable. One approach that has been shown to be a useful tool to facilitate a variety of cognitive and perceptual abilities is transcranial electrical current stimulation (e.g. transcranial direct current stimulation, transcranial random noise stimulation, transcranial alternating current stimulation). While commonly employed in non-social domains (e.g. numerical cognition, motor learning), fewer studies have examined the utility of this approach for modulating the perception of social information. In this talk, I will describe a series of studies using transcranial electrical current stimulation in order to examine neural processes that are involved in specific social perception abilities, and whether we can use brain stimulation to aid the processing of social cues. The talk will include studies examining facial identity and emotion perception, social cognition (particularly self-other representations), and examining affective state modulation following transcranial electrical current stimulation. I will discuss the promises and challenges of using transcranial electrical current stimulation to modulate social perception abilities in different groups (younger and older typical adults and atypical adults).

Biography:

Michael Banissy is a Reader in Psychology at Goldsmiths where he is the Director of the Non-Invasive Brain Stimulation Laboratory. Prior to taking up his position at Goldsmiths he worked at the Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience (University College London) where he completed his PhD (awarded 2010) and held personal Post-Doctoral Fellowships awarded by the British Academy and the Economic and Social Research Council. He has contributed to several diverse research areas, including synaesthesia, social cognition, brain stimulation, and face recognition. This has resulted in him receiving a number of honours, including substantial external funding and prizes from major scientific bodies in the UK and internationally (e.g. 2016 British Psychological Society Spearman Medal, 2017 Bertleson Award).

The field workshop «Mesozoic and Cenozoic paleobiogeocenoses of the Northern hemisphere» will be held within the framework of the main activity of the Laboratory of Mesozoic and Cenozoic continental ecosystems (TSU, Faculty of Geology and Geography).

Dates: July 15 – 30 (Module 1), August 4 – September 3 (Module 2)

Language: English, Russian

Target group: international students, researchers and professors

Application deadline: May 25, 2017 (Module 1), June 15 (Module 2)

Topics: paleontological, stratigraphic and paleogeographic methods of field research

Short description of the school:

The Laboratory does interdisciplinary research of Mesozoic and Cenozoic biogeocenoses, abiotic and biotic relationships, problems of extinction and survival of organisms. The field works will be carried out on paleontological sites, natural and artificial geological sections. There will be lectures and practical training in the methods of excavations and basic principles of taphonomic and paleoecological analyses, stratigraphic and paleogeographic research.

The workshop will consist of two local modules:

1. The Chulym River basin (Achinsk, Bol’shoy Uluy, Kozul’ka districts of Krasnoyarsk territory; the field workshop area is 500–600 km away from Tomsk). The territory of research includes dinosaur and mammoth fauna sites (Berezovaya Rechka, Krasnaya Rechka and others), important Mesozoic (Bol’shoy Ilek) and Pleistocene geological sections of the Chulym River and its tributaries. We have a boat trip planned as a part of this module.

2. The undrained lake basin of the Baraba lowland (Kargat, Barabinsk, Chany districts of Novosibirsk province; the field worskshop area is 500–600 km away from Tomsk). The territory of research includes Volchia Griva, one of the largest mammoth fauna site comprising Paleolithic artifacts, and Pleistocene geological sections of the Om’ River and Lake Chany.

Summer school schedule preliminary:

Module 1: July 15 – 30 (the field period is 12 days);

Module 2: August 4 – September 3 (the field period is 26 days). The schedule of the module is flexible. Students may join Module 2 after the start date of the programme and may withdraw prior to the module’s end date. In this case, however, the cost of individual transportation is the responsibility of the attendee.

The workshop will be held in field camps in taiga and forest-steppe zones. There will be an expedition bathhouse (Russian banya) available on site. All the participants are expected to take turns at cooking as catering is not provided. The school programme will also include excursions in Tomsk, safety trainings, supplies purchase, and field equipment preparation (three days before and two days after the fieldwork period).
