Epidemiology Lecture

Dr. Tomáš Paus, "Population Neuroscience: Observing to Change"

Tuesday 10/11 3:00PM - 4:00PM
A521 Public Health

Dr. Tomáš Paus

Anne and Max Tanenbaum Professor and Chair of Population Neuroscience
Rotman Research Institute, Baycrest Centre for Geriatric Care
Senior Scientist, Rotman Research Institute, Baycrest Centre for Geriatric Care
Professor of Psychology and Psychiatry, University of Toronto
 
Dr. Paus is an expert in mapping the human brain in health and disease using a variety of tools, including positron emission tomography (PET), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), electro-encephalography (EEG) and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS). Over the past five years, Dr. Paus has initiated or joined several large-scale studies of brain maturation and cognitive & behavioral development during adolescence, thus pioneering a new discipline of population neuroscience that operates at an intersection of epidemiology, genetics and neuroscience.
 

Some of the specific areas of current interest include hormonal influences on the maturation of white matter (axon rather than myelin) during male puberty, effects of maternal smoking during pregnancy and drug experimentation during adolescence, and processing of social cues in faces and bodies in the context of conflict resolution and reconciliation.
