Chaos & Complex Systems Seminar
Social networking sites and adolescent health
Time: 12:05 pm
Place: 4274 Chamberlin
Speaker: Megan A. Moreno, UW School of Medicine and Public Health
Abstract: Revolutionary advances in biological and biomedical imaging over the last twenty years have brought about the development of improved methods for non-invasively imaging dynamic biological processes. Of particular significance have been optical (photonic) techniques that have allowed for the visualization and manipulation of molecular and cellular structures within living tissue with minimal perturbation. The efforts of the multidisciplinary UW-Madison Laboratory for Optical and Social networking sites are popular among adolescents and college students. References to health behaviors and conditions, such as alcohol and depression, are frequently seen on these sites. The meaning and influence of such displays is currently under investigation and will be explored in this talk.<br>
