Credit: CaltechAntonio Rangel, Caltech’s Bing Professor of Neuroscience, Behavioral Biology, and Economics, is one of three recipients of the 2019 NOMIS Distinguished Scientist and Scholar Awards.The awards are presented to “exceptional scientists and scholars, who through their innovative, groundbreaking research, have made a significant contribution to their respective field,” according to a release issued by the NOMIS Foundation, a Swiss organization that aims to spur innovative research in the natural sciences, social sciences, and the humanities. NOMIS is interested in research that involves interdisciplinary collaboration between the sciences and the humanities.Rangel’s NOMIS award will support his project, “Using Triangulation to Characterize the Neurocomputational Basis of Simple Choice,” which aims to push our understanding of the neurocomputational basis of simple decisions, such as choosing between an apple and an orange, by investigating these types of choices in rodents, humans, and other animals.Rangel’s previous research has focused on determining the computational and neurobiological basis for decision-making using technologies that include functional magnetic resonance imaging, electroencephalograms, and transcranial magnetic stimulation, among others. The NOMIS award will allow his lab to take this research further by comparing the neurocomputational basis of simple choices across species.Rangel received his PhD in economics from Harvard University in 1998 and his BS in economics from Caltech in 1993. He was named a fellow of the Association for Psychological Science in 2018 and served as the President of the Society for Neuroeconomics from 2009 to 2010. He received a CAREER Award from the National Science Foundation in 2002 and was a national fellow at the Hoover Institution from 2000 to 2001.

first_imgUlster made it four Guinness PRO12 wins in succession to move level with Glasgow at the top of the table, downing Scarlets 25-20 in a hard-fought match. Tries from Craig Gilroy, Luke Marshall and Ruan Pienaar got Ulster the four points with the South African ending up with 15 points from the final total. However, Neil Doak’s men will be disappointed not to have bagged a bonus win on the night Ian Humphreys won his 100th cap – Kristian Phillips’ late try denying them outright leadership of the league. Tries from John Barclay, sub Phillips and two conversions and the same number of penalties from Steven Shingler brought up the Scarlets’ total as they made off with a valuable losing bonus point after they had found themselves trailing 25-13. A first half interception try for Barclay and a conversion and two penalties from Shingler, against two Pienaar penalties, saw the Scarlets lead 13-6 at half-time. The Welsh side got things moving with a Shingler penalty in the 13th minute, which made up for his earlier miss on a blustery night at the Kingspan Stadium. Pienaar was then wide with a 13th minute shot at goal before Shingler also missed again just before the 20-minute mark. But Ulster managed to level the scores in the 23rd minute when Pienaar nailed a penalty after the Scarlets scrum was penalised. Shingler then nudged the Scarlets in front again with a 27th minute penalty, only for Pienaar to level things again three minutes later. But with Ulster increasingly forced to play deep in their own half, Humphreys threw a pass which was intercepted by Barclay, who ran in under the posts. Shingler converted and the Scarlets led 13-6 with three minutes on the clock in the first half. Ulster got a break six minutes after the restart, though, and after Shingler kicked out to the wing, Gilroy collected and set off on a typically mazy run to beat three defenders and score in the right corner. Pienaar could not land the difficult conversion but Ulster had hope, trailing by just two points. The hosts then took the lead for the first time. After Rob Herring won an impressive turnover, Humphreys found Marshall running a strong line and he barged over. Pienaar converted and Ulster led 18-13 after 51 minutes. The South African then got over for a 59th minute try and converted it himself to stretch the advantage to 12 points. The bonus point seemed a realistic prospect for Ulster – but they failed to get it and the Scarlets had the final say thanks to Phillips’ late touchdown. Press Associationlast_img read more

first_imgCaribbean transport ministers have agreed to ork together to develop a regional policy for maritime transportation. The move was among measures to come out of the Regional High-Level Symposium on International Maritime Developments held last week in Montego Bay. Development of the policy will ensure that the Caribbean maritime industry operates in a sustainable manner. Secretary General of the International Maritime Organization (IMO), Koji Sekimizu, who spoke to JIS News after the closing session on Friday, February 22, hailed the move. “This is significant. What they have achieved today was a sort of collective willingness to achieve sustainable maritime in the Caribbean region,” he stated. He noted that the Rio+20 summit held in Brazil last year had established the way forward in terms of environmental sustainability, but “you cannot talk about sustainable development without shipping.” “We therefore want to ensure that the shipping itself will be sustainable,” he added. The IMO head, who was visiting Jamaica for the first time, said he was delighted at the outcome of the discussions and the level of commitment by the ministers. “I am looking forward to further collaborations among member governments of the (International) Maritime Organization in this region,” he told JIS News. The high-level meeting, held over four-days at the Iberostar Beaches Hotel, brought together ministries and senior officials from the Caribbean maritime sector to discuss critical developments that will affect their countries’ reputation as responsible maritime states. Among issues looked at were opportunities for capacity building, and the maritime labour convention. Minister of Transport and Works, Dr. the Hon. Omar Davies, told JIS News that the delegates examined ways in which the region could meet the requirements, which have been established by the IMO for various countries. He said that Mr. Sekimizu was “impressed with where we are and is now very cognizant of what our needs are to bring all our countries up to international standards.”He noted that there are some challenges for the smaller countries and Jamaica has offered to assist in helping them meet their obligations.The IMO Secretary General’s attendance, he said, was indicative of the region’s growing importance in the industry and the extent to which Caribbean nations are providing trained personnel to work in the sector.Dr. Davies, who is the Chairman of the Caribbean Transport Ministers, marshalled the discussions and guided the participants into completing the draft Jamaica 2013 symposium resolution, which will determine the way forward for the industry.According to the resolution, the agreement for the development of a Caribbean maritime policy is in recognition of the importance of “safe, secure, environmentally sound and efficient maritime transport services for the movement of goods and people, and the socio-economic benefit, to states and territories, of a clean marine environment to the livelihood and well-being of their inhabitants and the growth of their fisheries and tourism industries.”As such, the participants committed to: “providing the necessary means and support at the national and regional levels for adequate marine environmental research, monitoring and evaluation, in order to maintain the ecological integrity of the marine and coastal waters of the Caribbean Sea, given its critical socio-economic and environmental importance to member states.”last_img read more
