Philosophy club approved for new school year

first_imgMembers of the Undergraduate Philosophy Club, new this semester, will have a venue to engage outside the classroom with the work of Albert Camus, Friedrich Nietzsche and other philosophy experts. Senior Katie Finley, club president, said before the Student Activities Office (SAO) approved the club in the spring, Notre Dame’s strong philosophy department lacked a corresponding student organization. “Looking at other schools that have reputable philosophy programs like Notre Dame, all the rest had undergraduate philosophy clubs,” Finley said. “Notre Dame was the only one of its caliber that didn’t have a philosophy club.” Junior and club treasurer Cameron Cortens said the organization allows philosophy majors to sharpen skills that apply to their academic goals and enables non-philosophy majors to pursue questions they do not encounter in class. “Philosophy Club’s main purpose is to provide an informal atmosphere outside of classrooms and grades for Notre Dame students with an interest in philosophy to come together, share ideas, challenge themselves and one another intellectually on their positions and worldviews, and hopefully arrive at some fruitful discoveries in the realm of truth,” Cortens said. The club consists of students studying philosophy as well as students studying other disciplines, according to Finley. “We have a lot of people who aren’t philosophy majors,” Finley said. “It’s just kind of a good way to get an opportunity to talk, especially because they don’t get that opportunity in their classes a lot of time.” Finley said the club would meet once a week to discuss various philosophical writings. “We’re going to send out a short article ahead of time that isn’t too dry and academic, and then we’re going to discuss it,” Finley said. Finley said she plans to host monthly movie events at which attendees can watch a relevant film and discuss the philosophical ideas it raises. Cortens said the Undergraduate Philosophy Club will screen “Fight Club” in September, but the exact date has not yet been determined. The club will also have dining hall dinners with philosophy graduate students and professors to learn about their research, Finley said. She also said she hopes to organize a spring conference at which a University professor or an outside speaker will address club members. Last year, Finley said the club met as an unofficial group with between 10 and 15 members at each gathering. “We’re hoping to get a lot more members now that we can advertise because we’re official,” Finley said. The club plans to integrate philosophy lovers of all levels of study, Finley said. “[We hope] to make more of a connection between undergraduate students and graduate students and faculty members, especially for undergraduates that are hoping to go into graduate school for philosophy,” Finley said. “[Another goal is] also to get more people interested in majoring in philosophy, just to show them what studying philosophy is actually like outside the freshmen intro classes.” Senior Dylan Belton, club vice president, said the club would have fun events in addition to the more serious ones so that members can get to know each other. “Philosophical discussions become more and more fruitful as the partakers grow in friendship and mutual respect for others involved in the discussion,” Belton said. Senior Chelsea King, club vice president, emphasized the impact the club has already had on her experience at Notre Dame. “As a transfer student, it has really proved to be a great place for me to meet many incredible individuals who all share a common passion in discussing very deep and profound questions about life,” she said. “I have made many friends since my time in the club.”last_img read more

Childhood adversity linked to reduced inhibitory control and alterations in key brain networks

first_imgPinterest Share on Twitter Share on Facebook LinkedIn New research suggests that exposure to childhood adversity is associated with reduced cognitive control and alterations in key brain networks. The findings, which appear in the journal Social Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience, could help explain the link between childhood adversity and depression.“My work focuses on how we can use objective biomarkers to aid in clinical decision making,” said study author Scott A. Langenecker of the University of Utah. “One challenging clinical decision point is what to do when individuals have recovered from a depressive episode. Do we continue treatment? Do we exercise regular check-ins? Or do we just wait and see?” center_img Email Share “As depressive episodes can sneak up on people and as they may interfere with help-seeking, it may be better to have objective tools to predict risk for recurrence of depression, so that we can provide a higher level of follow-up care and preventative treatments (or maintenance therapy) for these individuals. As about half of those with remitted depression will have recurrence in a year or two, this could be a very useful clinical decision tool,” Langenecker explained.The researchers were particularly interested in a component of cognitive control known as inhibitory control — meaning the ability to stop a hasty reflexive response. “Cognitive control impairment is associated with depression and has been observed in the remitted phase of illness,” the researchers wrote.In the study, 53 individuals with remitted major depressive disorder and 40 healthy controls completed a Go/No-Go task measuring inhibitory control. The participants also completed a survey on childhood adversity and current life stress, and underwent a fMRI scanning session to assess gray matter volume and resting state connectivity in the brain.The researchers found that participants who reported higher level of childhood adversity tended to exhibit poorer inhibitory control. This was true in both groups even after controlling for depression symptoms and current stressors.Langenecker and his colleagues also found that childhood adversity was associated with alterations in three important brain networks: the cognitive control network, the salience and emotion network, and the default mode network.“We know that depression is different for each person, and for some it is a recurrent, chronic illness somewhat like diabetes. We should be asking critical questions of our health care systems, insurance companies and providers about how we can better maintain wellness and prevent recurrence,” Langenecker told PsyPost. “Treatment can be preventative and does not need to be reactive. Higher levels of care and proactive prevention can reduce bad outcomes (like relationship problems and divorce, education difficulties, low work productivity and quality (presenteeism), and risk for suicide).”The study — like all research — has some limitations.“The main caveat is that the study has not yet been replicated, and in a larger sample. Many interesting leads like this do not replicate because of subtle differences in the samples used and analysis techniques,” Langenecker explained.“I’d like to encourage individuals who struggle with depression to demand better preventative treatment options and better insurance coverage for these types of biometric tools,” he added. “Ask your care provider what steps they take for evidence-based practice. Ask them to use objective measures of treatment change and empirically based treatments.”The study, “Cognitive control and network disruption in remitted depression: a correlate of childhood adversity“, was authored by Meghan E. Quinn, Jonathan P. Stange, Lisanne M. Jenkins, Samantha Corwin, Sophie R. DelDonno, Katie L. Bessette, Robert C. Welsh, and Scott A. Langenecker.last_img read more
