Emotional Intelligence
December 5 2017 at 3:30 PM
One of the biggest indicators of success in the workplace is the ability to recognize and manage one’s emotions. Being able to identify our physical and emotional cues makes it much more likely we will handle difficult situations with rational thought, versus allowing our emotions to drive our actions. Participants will learn how to express their needs and feelings in an assertive and respectful manner, thus maximizing their potential to be effective in their workplace activities.

Pre-Clinical Research

The Pre-clinical Laboratory of the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Neuroscience contains a state of the art 11.7 T vertical bore magnet. The preclinical MR spectroscopy lab is focused on assessing the MR-visible neurochemical profile in drug-induced or genetic animal models of neuropsychiatric disorders as well as assessment of metabolomic profiles characteristic of human tissue. Since the high-resolution magic angle spinning proton spectra obtained at 11.7 Tesla is determined with intact tissue samples, the information derived from these studies in situ will provide insight into the diagnostic or research value of clinical proton scans in vivo.
