Feb 15 @ 4:30 pm – 6:45 pm
Edinburgh Medical School: Let’s talk about health: Breast cancer; the advent of personalised medicine @ Queen's Medical Research Institute | Scotland | United Kingdom

“Let’s Talk About Health” is all about advancing our knowledge of health and what goes wrong in disease. Join us to hear about new research in our University that is increasing our understanding of diseases and providing new advances in treatment. Guests will be able to talk to our young scientists about their research, and S4 and S5 pupils will have an opportunity to tour our labs before the talks. We look forward to seeing you there!

Professor Karen Chapman

University/BHF Centre for Cardiovascular Science

Most people associate breast cancer with women. However, men can also be affected. Currently, 1 in 8 women in the UK will be affected by breast cancer during their lifetime. Huge steps have been made in understanding some of the complexities underpinning this disease and developing increasingly effective treatment strategies. This started here in Scotland, with Beatson’s discovery that in some women, removal of the ovaries can shrink tumours. Join us to hear about some of the key advances that have led to over 85% of women now living more than 5 years after diagnosis of breast cancer. We will explore exciting research aimed at developing new treatment strategies, that are personalised to the individual patient’s cancer, to maximise treatment effectiveness and limit unpleasant side-effects.

Speakers

Dr Helen Creedon, and Professor Val Brunton, Edinburgh Cancer Research Centre, The University of Edinburgh

Doors open 4.30pm with teas and coffees available.

Ragged University: Mood hacker – Feelings, emotions and moods (what are they, how do they work, and how you can manage them better) @ Cabaret Voltaire
Mar 14 @ 6:30 pm – 9:30 pm
Ragged University: Mood hacker - Feelings, emotions and moods (what are they, how do they work, and how you can manage them better) @ Cabaret Voltaire | Scotland | United Kingdom

Come along for a bite of food, a chance to socialise and learn how to be a mood hacker…

 

The first event of the Ragged University year starts with some food and a chance to catch up. Where we have the beginning of a series of events by Leon Paterson:

 

Mood hacker – Feelings, emotions and moods (what are they, how do they work, and how you can manage them better)

The pace of change in a rapidly developing world is happening so quickly. Keeping up to date and managing the feelings needed to be able to adapt and develop can be very challenging. Pleasure, joy, happiness are some of the wide range of feelings which enrich our lives. These positive feelings are what people naturally move towards, not knowing that sometimes so called ‘bad feelings’ are necessary and also enrich our lives. If you break your toe the feelings of pain alert you to seek medical help.

Something similar happens in feelings where emotions of fear or anxiety alert us to a potential threat. If a student has an exam in a few days and hasn’t done any revision. The feelings of discomfort alert her to the threat of failing her exam. They are useful and can get us activated, but can be uncomfortable. They are labelled ‘bad feelings’ and much of the personal psychology self help books go to great lengths to avoid them.

Everyday there seems to be a new self help book espousing the latest elixir of eternal happiness. Most of these are written by journalists or psychologists who have not fully tested out the limitations of their self help model. They are one trick ponies who claim to have the answer to all of your problems in a few hundred pages or less.

Of all these books there is very little of any significance on how emotions, feelings and moods actually work. Luckily here in Scotland the leading research in behavioural science has produced models which can help us fully understand and manage our feelings and emotions. They are made accessible and attainable to all, not by going out to scam people, but aiming to educate and facilitate personal development.

The latest in behavioural modelling science leads the way in accurately understanding how feelings/emotions/moods work. We now understand the important role feelings have in keeping us safe and getting us activated. We now know that emotions aren’t something that switches on or off, that we can vary, alter and decrease/increase them when managed well. But don’t take my word for it. Come along to this interactive event and take an opportunity to try out for yourself the latest scientific technology in moods, feeling and emotions.

 

 

Come along, bring a friend, put your feet up.  Bring an item of food to put on the table to share, and help take away the food which you like at the end.  All Ragged University events are free and open to everyone…

Ragged University: Psychology and Behaviour Modelling Meetup @ Cabaret Voltaire
Mar 29 @ 6:30 pm – 9:00 pm
Ragged University: Psychology and Behaviour Modelling Meetup @ Cabaret Voltaire | Scotland | United Kingdom

Come along to Cabaret Voltaire (36-38 Blair St, Edinburgh, EH1 1QR), doors open at 6.30pm and the talk starts from 7pm. Come along for a bite of food, a chance to socialise and get involved in a discussion on psychology and behaviour modelling…

Come along to this highly interactive psychology meetup event.

No previous knowledge necessary just a sense of curiosity and openness to engage with others.

Each meetup we will explore a specific topic of human behaviour that has been widely researched and experimented upon.

There will be a formal introduction of the subject as well as opportunity for you to share your ideas and knowledge of this topic area.

Then through a number of explorative tasks and mini experiments we will have a chance to test out the subject matter for ourselves.

This process can involve working with others in small groups, or sharing in a guided group exploration.

The first week’s topic -“We only see what we want to see” – Reality is a construct of our experience.

There are a number of different psychology experiments in which people fail to notice apparently obvious alterations to a scene. People switch places, pictures are manipulated, all without the unwitting subject’s knowledge. In these experiments it is claimed a large part of what we notice is not the raw sensory information in front of us. But a construct based on our model of the world (of what we expect to see there).

So does this sort of response only happen in psychology experiments?

Another way to explore this subject matter is to consider how we make sense of our everyday experience. A common phrase “glass half empty, glass half full” is often used to describe the different ways people measure the world.  The person (subject A) who notices the glass half empty is measuring what’s not there. The person (subject B) who notices it half full is measuring what is there. So although the amount of liquid inside the glass is the same, subject A and subject B are measuring it differently. There are lots of ways we can potentially investigate our everyday measuring of the world, some of which we will test.

People’s sense of reality can also be affected by their beliefs about what kind of world we live in. Someone who believes in conspiracy theories may notice and interpret the world as a dark and fearful place. They can become suspicious of mainstream news and dismissive of hard factual evidence. For example there has recently been a resurgence in people who believe the earth is flat. This may seem ludicrous given the scientific evidence. But serves to demonstrate how people can interpret the world as they see and believe it to be.

If you’re a flat earther, or just curious or want to get involved in this new, intriguing, interactive meetup. We look forward to sharing ideas and more with you.

People spend more time learning how to work their mobile phones than how to work their minds. We obsess about how we appear to others. But how much time do you spend investing in how you think, how you understand yourself and develop your emotions. There has never been a time in history where your ability to learn quickly and adapt to fit a changing environment has been so necessary.

So before you decide if this event’s for you. Ask yourself honestly – could I do with an update so I’m the most effective version of myself?

On this meetup you will learn

  • How to apply a sequence of change to any situation
  • A model of analysis for improved understanding of self and others
  • A range of thinking tools for managing challenges and difficulties
  • The building blocks of experience – how we create our reality
  • Enhanced perception skills – 6 different ways of creating memories and imagination
  • Connect with a sense of whole self that transcends any single moment

Resilience to succeed – A highly interactive approach to restoring, recovering and overcoming by Leon Paterson

How do people deal with difficult events that change their lives? The loss of a job, illness, relationship breakup and other traumatic events: these are all examples of very challenging life experiences. Many people react to such circumstances with a flood of strong emotions and sense of uncertainty.

Yet people generally adapt well over time to life-changing situations and stressful conditions. What enables them to do so? It involves resilience, an ongoing process that requires action and not reaction. It involves responding to life’s challenges and actively resisting against adversity.

Research has shown that people commonly demonstrate resilience in everyday situations. However more often than not it’s not something they’ve consciously learned. But has been a natural process they’ve picked up though their development.

The good news is resilience is a skill that can be improved and developed. And in this highly interactive practical introduction. You will quickly begin learning new skills in how to recover from any situation.

Mind management workshop – Learn and explore the realistic benefits of mindfulness, meditation and self hypnosis for managing your mind.by Leon Paterson

According to research we are exposed to over 5000 adverts a day – social media, billboards, 24 hour news all compete for our attention. Many people’s thoughts are passively following where their attention leads. This is because they have learned to respond almost automatically to the world.

Yet most people are able to concentrate their attention effortlessly in situations that demand it. What enables this to be achieved is party down to the context. A working environment for example will activate you into becoming focused on what’s important… your work! What is more challenging is managing your attention independently.

We have incredible purposeful minds that alert us to things that seem important. They just might not be important at that particular moment. Going over and over an argument you had, or repeatedly replaying something you regret doing. Are examples of unwanted thoughts that can seem automatic.

Research demonstrates people who are better able to manage their thoughts and attention have a better quality of life, are more in control of their emotions, and have a range of ways to view the same situation. The good news is these are skills that everybody can learn and develop. And in this highly practical introduction you will learn how to apply mind management skills for your own personal development.
