Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
Galway, a small city of almost 80,000 on Ireland’s west coast will host festivals, exhibits, concerts and workshops throughout the year relating to the Irish language, landscape and migration.
The events are by artists from Galway in addition to European artists who will “unveil their own interpretations of these themes,” the city’s 2020 programme website states. – By Euronews • last updated: 31/12/2019
It might just have been named a European Capital of Culture for 2020, but Galway City, in the west of Ireland, wasn’t in need of any help where the arts are concerned.

At a basic level, behavior can be understood in terms of two general classes of motivational processes: appetitive/positive and aversive/negative. Everyone agrees that both positive and negative processes are important, yet scientists still do not know much how these processes affect perception and cognition. In this talk, I will introduce my recent work on the role of affective motivational states in perception and cognition. I leverage recent methodological advances to enhance our understanding of emotion-perception, emotion- cognition integration and interaction. In particular, I will present behavioral, physiological and neuroimaging evidence showing how gain and loss influence earlier perceptual processing, and how simultaneous threat and reward interact in the visual processing. I close by discussing the clinical implications of my work, and how my studies can help understand the mechanisms that potentially go awry in mental illness.
Please join us on Tuesday, Oct. 1st @ 5 pm in the library for a screening of NOVA: Poison Water
How safe is our tap water?
This one-hour special report from PBS’s science series, NOVA, follows the ordinary citizens and independent scientists who exposed the danger lurking in Flint’s water and confronted those who turned a blind eye. Discover the disturbing truth that reaches far beyond Flint—water systems across the country are similarly vulnerable. How can we protect ourselves from poisoned water?
