The DCCS students, Gabriela Valdebenito Oyarzo and María Paz Martínez Molina, both of the Generation 2016, had an outstanding participation in the Annual Meeting of the Organization for Human Brain Mapping, held from 17 to June 21, 2018, in the city of Singapore, Singapore.
Valdebenito presented “Unmasking reciprocity: Frontomedial negativity underlying the integration of outcomes and intentions in trust-repayment behavior”, showing the results of her research unit called “Posterior Parental Cortex encodes prediction error during decision-making under ambiguity”, as part of the FONDECYT 1140535 project.
On the other hand, Martínez showed her work “Theta activity training in lateral prefrontal cortex increases proactive cognitive control”, linked to proactive cognitive control.
Dr. Mauricio Aspé-Sánchez, of the DCCS 2015 generation, presented his research on “Unmasking reciprocity: Frontomedial negativity underlying the integration of outcomes and intentions in trust-repayment behavior”, using the investment game and the dictator game, in order to define what the role of altruism and reciprocity is in making social decisions.
The conference was also attended by the PhD. in Medical Sciences, Pablo Billeke and PhD. Francisco Zamorano, specialist in neuroscience, both researchers from the Research Center for Social Complexity (CICS, as its Spanish acronym). Zamorano presented his work “Dorsolateral prefrontal theta oscillations reflect contextual cognitive impairment in ADHD”. Dr. Pablo Billeke Bobadilla, spoke about “Cause role of temporo-parietal brain oscillatory activity in social bargaining”, which is also part of the FONDECYT 11140535 project.
This ceremony seeks to be a meeting place to give and receive updated information about the human brain mapping, as well as being an opportunity for both researchers and experts from around the world to have an instance for feedback. In this way, the conference has several sessions by scientists who provide information about innovations in this field and the latest developments in the area.
The Organization for Human Brain Mapping (OHBM) is an international organization dedicated to the use of neuroimaging to discover the way the human brain is organized.
