13:00 - SEMINAR - Regulation of the L-type Ca2+ channel by free radicals and role in the development of cardiac hypertrophy : School of Anatomy & Human Biology Seminar Series Website | More Information
The Seminar: The L-type Ca2+ channel plays a critical role in cardiac excitation and contraction and it is the main route for calcium influx into cardiac myocytes. The function of the channel can be modified during alterations in cellular redox state. A reduced cellular state such as during acute (...)
Friday 27
15:00 - Colloquium - Memory limitations alone do not lead to over-regularization: An experimental and computational investigation More Information
The “less is more” hypothesis suggests that one reason adults and children differ in their language acquisition abilities is that they also differ in other cognitive capacities. According to one version, children’s relatively poor memory may make them more likely to over-regularize inconsistent (...)
Tuesday 31
13:00 - SEMINAR - Navajo Infancy: Nature and Culture on the Cradleboard : School of Anatomy & Human Biology Seminar Series Website | More Information
The Seminar: Jim Chisholm describes his fieldwork among the Navajo (1968, 1972, 1974-76).
