UIS Staff: Wellbeing - Predictive Brains, Modelling Minds, Optimising Mental Functioning

Thu 10 Oct 2019


World Mental Health Day is an opportunity for all of us to raise awareness of mental health issues and advocate against social stigma.

As part of the UIS Wellbeing initiative we are very pleased to invite Hisham Ziauddeen a Clinical Senior Research Associate in the Department of Psychiatry and the University’s Wellbeing and Disability Champion to deliver a talk on Optimising Brain Functioning. He is a consultant psychiatrist working in early intervention in psychosis.

He will talk about the contemporary neuroscience models of the brain as a modeller of its environment (including the debt owed to the cyberneticists Conant and Ashby) and how this helps us think about other minds and our own mental functioning and ways to improve it.
