The Science of Safety: Understanding the Role of the Nervous System in Our Mental Health

Tuesday, November 29, 2022 - 13:00 to 14:30
C209

Why is it that when you have a tense conversation with a boss, coworker, or partner, you feel like you’re staring down a charging rhinoceros? How is it that both situations cause a fight-or-flight response? To answer these questions, we will take a closer look at the autonomic nervous system and the way our biology helps us navigate daily life, how we respond to cues of safety and danger below the level of conscious thought, and how this guides the way we move through the world, from turning toward and backing away, to connecting and other times isolating.

If this ignites the curious part of you, please come and join me, and let’s befriend our autonomic nervous system together.

Abstract: The Heisenberg uncertainty principle, which is a fundamental result in quantum mechanics, and related inequalities such as the hydrogen and Hardy uncertainty principles, belong to the family of geometric inequalities known as the Caffarelli-Kohn-Nirenberg inequalities. In this talk, we discuss some recent results about the optimal uncertainty principles, Caffarelli-Kohn-Nirenberg inequalities, and their quantitative stability. The talk is based on recent joint works with C. Cazacu, J. Flynn and G. Lu.

Inclusive Leadership Symposium 2023

Wednesday, February 1, 2023 - 10:00 to Thursday, February 2, 2023 - 16:00
Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Graduate University, Auditorium and Conference Center.

In the face of ongoing change across our world, societies, and organizations, Inclusive Leadership is critical for creating conditions and climates that enhance adaptability, empowerment and collaboration, and a strong sense of community and belonging. This year’s symposium brings us together to explore how the qualities of inclusive leadership can be engendered at multiple levels across our institutions.

We invite participants from Japan and across the world to engage in discussions, inquiry, and strategic thinking to explore how to: develop institutional cultures where every individual can thrive and their contributions are valued; instill ownership amongst leaders at all levels to actively foster inclusion and equity; empower those who identify as people from minoritized and underrepresented backgrounds to realize their full leadership potential.
