Soup and Sandwich Seminar: Neurobiology of Emotions: Defining "Self" Through Literature and Sub-Conscious Emotional Memories

April 19, 2018 at 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.

TimeApril 19, 2018 at 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Presenter: Dr, Sanjive Qazi, Biology Department

What happens when you hook yourself up to electrodes and read Shakespeare? Dr. Sanjive Qazi tells us about his recent "Neurobiology of Emotions" J-term class in which students directly explored the intersection between arts and science through the study of Shakespeare's plays and models of sub-conscious memory formation in the brain. Through measurement of sub-conscious emotional output using non-invasive devices, the formation of emotional memories can be directly observed in real time while experiencing literature or any art form. Students gain understanding of how emotional memories are formed and attempt to model emotional responses to gain understanding of the sub-conscious self.
