10 Ways to have a better conversation | Celeste Headlee

When your job hinges on how well you talk to people, you learn a lot about how to have conversations — and that most of us don’t converse very well.

In this insightful talk, she shares 10 useful rules for having better conversations. “Go out, talk to people, listen to people,” she says. “And, most importantly, be prepared to be amazed.”

Madness, molecules and medicines – understanding schizophrenia and its treatment.
Professor Gavin Reynolds
Sheffield Hallam University

Schizophrenia is a common disorder with a lifetime prevalence of approximately 1% and a profoundly reduced life expectancy, yet the reasons underlying its development are not clearly understood and for many people it remains poorly treated. I shall discuss old and new research into the brain in schizophrenia and how that relates (or not) to mechanisms of the current drug treatments. The biological basis for the effects of these antipsychotic drugs – and especially their often severe adverse effects – will also be discussed, along with recent research that may lead towards more effective “precision medicine”.

New Research Project to Shed Light on the Emotional World of Dogs

labrador-2692792_1920
A new research project will examine how dogs show emotion – and the researchers are looking for volunteers.

PhD student, Annika Huber, from the School of Life Sciences’ Animal Behaviour, Cognition and Welfare group is aiming to discover how dogs show emotions by looking closer at their face and body language. They will examine how dogs show the pleasure of expectation for a much loved reward and how this differs from when they have to wait longer to get it.

For the study, they are looking for Labrador Retrievers at the first instance.

If you own a Labrador Retriever who loves food and you would like to come with your dog to the University four to five times to take part, then the team would like to hear from you.

To register your interest and for more details, please contact Annika Huber
