12:00 - TALK - Talk by Simone Favelle - "Up, down, round and round: Matching faces across changes in axis and rotation" More Information
Studies from my lab have demonstrated that face recognition following rotations in the pitch and yaw axes is viewpoint dependent and that the effect of change in viewpoint in the pitch axis is qualitatively different to that in yaw (Favelle, Palmisano & Maloney, 2007; Favelle, Palmisano & (...)

16:00 - VISITING SPEAKER - New horizons in plant mitochondria group-II intron splicing : In plants, transcription of mitochondrial genes is catalyzed by single subunit phage-type RNA-polymerases in conjunction with accessory factors which aid promoter recognition. More Information
The primary transcripts must then undergo extensive processing, including the maturation of 5’ and 3’ termini, RNA-editing and the splicing of many group-II-type introns (the precise number varying by species), which lie mainly within complex I subunits but also disrupt the coding-regions of (...)

18:00 - PUBLIC LECTURE - Resurrecting the Passions: Lessons from the History of Passion and Emotion Website | More Information
In this lecture bioethicist Professor Louis Charland will examine medical highlights of the history of passion and emotion and then consider several arguments why the passions must be reinstated in Western psychiatry. The passions, it turns out, are not only central constituents of any adequate (...)
Wednesday 27
16:00 - SEMINAR - “Signalling pathways intersected by the Src family tyrosine kinase Lyn involved in blood development and cancer” Website | More Information
Associate Professor Evan Ingley heads the Cell Signalling group at WAIMR, which has an interest in understanding the signalling networks or "information highways" of both normal and diseased cells. Many of the new generation anti-cancer drugs disrupt these signalling networks and bring (...)

18:00 - PUBLIC LECTURE - Australia’s first steps towards "Geothermal Cities" Website | More Information
The 2012 George Seddon Lecture will be given by Winthrop Professor Klaus Regenauer-Lieb Director, The Western Australian Geothermal Centre of Excellence (WAGCOE).

Geothermal energy from hot sedimentary aquifers (HSA) is recognised by the International Energy Agency as amongst the most (...)
Thursday 28
12:00 - TALK - Talk by Megan Willis - "Beyond explicit recognition: The influence of facial expressions on behaviour" More Information
Over the past four decades an abundance of research has been dedicated towards delineating the cognitive and neural mechanisms that underpin explicit facial expression recognition. We have a considerably poorer understanding of the manner in which we use the information depicted in facial (...)
Friday 29
8:30 - SYMPOSIUM - A Life Worth Hearing - Symposium : Symposium on Hearing Research More Information

18:05 - SEMINAR - ANZIAM Meeting/Seminar : Effects of passive porous walls on the instability of hypersonic boundary layers Website | More Information
Passive porous walls have been investigated as a means for delaying transition to turbulence in hypersonic flow. Here a theoretical linear stability analysis will be presented to consider the effect of a porous wall on the first (viscous) instability mode of a hypersonic boundary-layer flow over a (...)

13:00 - VISITING SPEAKER - Towards a blueprint of leaf development in C3 and C4 plants : The establishment of the C4 syndrome requires alterations in leaf anatomy, biochemistry and leaf development. More Information
We hypothesize that the massive changes in C4/C3 related gene expression are controlled by a subset of transcriptional regulators, which are essential for C4 photosynthesis establishment and/or maintenance. We analyze the Cleome genus, which includes closely related C4 (Cleome gynandra) and C3 (Cleo (...)

16:00 - VISITING SPEAKER - "India’s Enigmatic Policy towards Iran" by Professor P.R. Kumaraswamy : For close to a decade Iran has emerged as the most controversial and contested dimension of India’s foreign policy. The bonhomie that was visible following the end of the Cold War gave way to disputes, tensions and above all excessive US intervention. More Information
Synopsis: While some of the problems were external and hence beyond the control of both these countries, Iran has not been an easy customer and India’s ability to pursue energy security relations with Tehran has been compounded by a host of bilateral disputes and tension. Until Iran resolves its (...)
