This month, Dr. Julian F. Thayer, Distinguished Professor at the University of California, Irvine and Emeritus Professor at Ohio State University,  will be presenting "Heart to Heart: Evolutionary and Social Perspectives on the Role of the Vagus Nerve".

 

Biography: Dr. Julian F. Thayer received his B.A. with Honors from Indiana University and his Ph.D. from New York University in psychophysiology with a minor in quantitative methods. Dr. Thayer is currently Distinguished University Professor of Psychological Science at the University of California, Irvine and the Ohio Eminent Scholar Professor in Health Psychology Emeritus at the Ohio State University. He has published over 400 research papers and book chapters covering a wide range of topics including behavioral medicine, cardiology, emotion, psychopathology, bioengineering, research design and multivariate statistical techniques.

 

Summary: Humans are social animals. Therefore an understanding of the physiological concomitants of such social processes is useful in understanding human behavior. The vagus nerve serves various roles in the body including the regulation of social behavior. In the present talk I will outline the structure, function, and neural correlates of the vagus and its observable indicator, heart rate variability (HRV). Furthermore, I will propose that the vagus and HRV are related to our ability to distinguish threat from safety and that this is critical for successful social relationships. I will review our findings on HRV and emotion regulation, marital satisfaction, partner relationships, social support, and oxytocin. Finally, I will highlight several ways in which HRV may be modified and how these might serve to better our social relationships.

 

CONTACT: Co-chairs of the IH Journal Club and Speaker Series, Jordan Kohn, Ph.D., and Maíra Tristão Parra, Sc.D. (jokohn@ucsd.edu or mtristaoparra@ucsd.edu)
