"Transcranial infrared laser stimulation of cognitive and emotional functions in humans"

Mon, January 14, 2013 • 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM • SEA 3.250

Presenter: Dr. Francisco Gonzalez-Lima, George I. Sanchez Centennial Professor, Department of Psychology, UT Austin

Abstract:

This talk will discuss for the first time the exciting discovery of laser-mediated cognitive enhancement in humans:
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23200785
The talk will present the first controlled study of transcranial laser stimulation of psychological functions. This study provides an example of how neuroscience animal research can be translated into relevant aspects of human cognition, emotion and personality.  It suggests an opportunity for collaborative discoveries that may promote synergy between areas of our department.
