Joint Science Department Seminar


"Neurocognitive and Appetitive Behavior Research at the Claremont School of Community and Global Health"
Andy Johnson, Dean and Susan Ames, Associate Professor
CGU School of Community and Global Health
From: 11:00 AM To: 12:00 PM
Thursday, Mar 24, 2011
Keck Science Center, Burns Lecture Hall
This talk will address findings from dual process models of appetitive behavior including preliminary neuroscience findings. Dual process models describe a dynamic interplay between a relatively implicit or automatic associative system and an executive control/inhibitory system. Evidence from basic neurocognitive and behavioral research suggest that these processes interact in affecting substance use decisions.
