Event Description

Full Description:
Two talks have been scheduled.

Fast visuomotor responses reflect the expected value of potential targets

In this seminar, A/Prof Tim Carroll will also show some data collected while working in the Department of Engineering at Cambridge. They illustrate that the fastest responses that humans can make to visual feedback of an error, are tuned according to whether or not the error is likely to prevent a large or a small reward. This shows that information about the value of movement goals is transmitted to the lowest order components of the sensorimotor control system.

Does early feeding via a prophylactic gastrostomy improve quality of life in patients with head and neck cancer?

Patients with head and neck cancer are at high risk of malnutrition which is associated with reduced quality of life. The aim of Teresa Brown’s study was to improve nutrition outcomes with an early feeding approach and thus improve quality of life. Patients with a prophylactic gastrostomy were randomised to either early feeding or usual care. The early nutrition intervention did not improve nutrition outcomes or quality of life, however there was poor adherence to tube feeding recommendations.
