Upcoming Cognitive Psychology Colloquia

 

Philip Gable
Impact of Motivational Intensity on Affect, Cognition, and Neural Action Preparation

Motivation varies in direction (approach/withdrawal) and intensity (high/low). Dr. Philip Gable will present a body of multi-method research demonstrating the impact of motivational intensity on cognition, affect, and action preparation. His work will examine the neural correlates of motor action preparation (beta suppression) and effortful control (frontal asymmetry), as measured by EEG. Specifically, he will present cognitive research demonstrating the influence of high and low motivational intensity on local-global attention and central-peripheral memory. Implications for how this work informs models of emotion, goal pursuit, and addictive behaviors will be discussed.
