    December 3, 2014 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM Division of Applied Mathematics, Pattern theory Seminar John Cunningham Professor, Department of Statistics, Columbia University Hypothesis-guided dimensionality reduction and its application to large-scale neuroscience Like many fields, neuroscience is experiencing dramatic increases in the quantity and complexity of recorded data, with the goal of similarly dramatic scientific and technological advances. Critical to realizing these ambitions are the analysis methods to interrogate large datasets jointly. Many questions in the field reduce to a question of "hypothesis-guided" dimensionality reduction: given a large number of noisy time-series, what shared low-dimensional process best describes the data in terms of that hypothesis? I will begin by briefly describing a few applications of this dimensionality reduction in neuroscience. I will then introduce a generic, hypothesis-guided linear dimensionality reduction solver using an optimization program over the Stiefel and Grassman manifolds. To demonstrate the utility of this solver, I will apply it to neural recordings from the motor cortex. Here we show that the seemingly hopeless complexity of neural responses can be simply described by a low-dimensional dynamical system at the level of the neural population. Finally, I will describe a critical statistical test of the significance of this hypothesis, verifying that the inferred structure is not a trivial consequence of high-dimensional data. http://www.dam.brown.edu/ptg/seminar.html George Street 182, Room 110 (Applied Mathematics) Dept: Applied Mathematics, Brain Science Program, Biology and Medicine, Lectures, Conferences, and Meetings, Departments, Seminars

Title: On Gains and Losses, Means and Ends: Motivational Changes across Adulthood. Abstract: This talk will introduce two main motivational changes that stand out across adulthood: (1) Motivation shifts from a primary orientation towards gains in young adulthood to a stronger orientation towards maintenance in middle adulthood and loss-avoidance in older ages. The age-related differences in motivational orientation affects the the setting and pursuit of goals and seems adaptive regarding subjective well-being and persistent goal pursuit. (2) The cognitive representation of goals shifts from a stronger focus on the outcomes of goal pursuit in young adulthood to an increasingly stronger focus on the process of goal pursuit. Adopting a process focus contributes to affective well-being and to the persistent pursuit of goals that place high demands on self-regulation (e.g., dieting, starting to exercise). Studies investigating the age-related changes in motivational orientation and goal focus as well as their consequences for affective experiences and behavior will be presented and discussed in a lifespan framework. http://brown.edu/Departments/CLPS/events Metcalf Research Laboratory, Room 101, Friedman Auditorium Colloquia, Open to the Public, Dept: CLPS, First Years, Sophomores, Juniors, Seniors, For Masters candidates only, For PhD candidates only, Audience, Brain Science Program, Biology and Medicine, Lectures, Conferences, and Meetings, Pre-Law, Faculty, Staff, Postdocs, Departments

    December 4, 2014 12:00 PM - 2:00 PM Friedman Family Lecture for Cognitive, Linguistic & Psychological Sciences. Perception Action Seminar co-sponsored with the Center for Vision Research. Speaker: Randy Flanagan, Queens University. Title: Representing objects and actions when interacting with the world Abstract: Most manual tasks involve grasping and manipulating objects. In the real world, such tasks often involve choosing among several candidate objects to act upon, and then generating motor commands tailored to the properties of the selected object. In the first part of this talk, I will discuss evidence for the provocative idea that, when confronted with multiple potential reach targets, the sensorimotor system prepares full-specified actions for each target, prior to selecting between then. I will suggest that doing so may enable the motor system to ‘co-optimize’ competing action plans. In the second part of the talk I will discuss how the sensorimotor system represents object weight, the accurate prediction of which is essential for skilled and dexterous manipulation. In addition to evidence from psychophysical experiments, I will describe recent functional neuroimaging work examining the contribution of object-sensitive ventral visual stream areas during the planning of manipulation tasks. Finally, time permitting, I will discuss what we can learn about action observers by recording their eye movements while they watch manipulation tasks. http://brown.edu/Departments/CLPS/events Metcalf Research Laboratory, Room 305 Dept: CLPS, Brain Science Program, Biology and Medicine, Lectures, Conferences, and Meetings, Departments, Lectures

Existing propensity score methods assume that covariates are measured without error but covariate measurement error is likely common. This talk will discuss the implications of measurement error in the covariates on the estimation of causal effects using propensity score methods and investigates Multiple Imputation using External Calibration (MIEC) to account for covariate measurement error in propensity score estimation. MIEC uses a main study sample and a calibration dataset that includes observations of the true covariate (X) as well as the version measured with error (W). MIEC creates multiple imputations of X in the main study sample, using information on the joint distribution of X, W, other covariates, and the outcome of interest, from both the calibration and the main data. In simulation studies we found that MIEC estimates the treatment effect almost as well as if the true covariate X were available. We also found that the outcome must be used in the imputation process, a finding related to the idea of congeniality in the multiple imputation literature. We illustrate MIEC using an example estimating the effect of neighborhood disadvantage on the mental health of adolescents, where the method accounts for measurement error in the adolescents' report of their mothers' age when they (the adolescents) were born. http://www.brown.edu/academics/public-health/biostatistics/brown-statistics-seminars-1 121 South Main, Room 245 Open to the Public, Audience, Dept: Applied Mathematics, Biology and Medicine, Lectures, Conferences, and Meetings, PH-biostatistics, Departments, Seminars
