Steffi Burchardt (Associate Professor, Uppsala University) will give a talk about laccoliths:

Laccoliths are magmatic intrusions with an upward-curved roof and two end-member geometries: the so-called Christmas tree and the punched laccolith. In my talk, I will give an overview of laccolith emplacement with examples from the Henry Mountains, Utah, and Elba Island, Italy, before reporting on field work and first results of ongoing research on laccolith emplacement in the cougar-rich Chachahuén volcano. This research is part of the DIPS and MIMES projects.

Johan Storm (Institute of basic medical sciences, UiO) will talk about the work he does in the "brain signaling" group. His group is interested in signaling and information processing in the brain at multiple levels, from synapses, neurons and circuits, to control of behavior and mental processes, in particular consciousness and memory.
