The ability to understand and empathize with others’ pain is grounded in cognitive neural processes rather than sensory ones, according to the results of a new study led by Tor Wager, director of the Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience Laboratory and Professor of Psychology and Neuroscience.

“The research suggests that empathy is a deliberative process that requires taking another person’s perspective rather than being an instinctive, automatic process,” said Wager.

For Professor Sarah Krakoff and her students, spring marks a transition from the halls of the Wolf Law Building to the fields of the San Luis Valley. Since 2012, Krakoff and her law students have regularly trekked to one of the largest high altitude deserts in the world, where they clear debris from irrigation ditches or acequias and provide free legal assistance to farmers whose water rights are in question.

Ditch the desk and go work outside! Sixteen third-year Environmental Design students spent their spring semester designing and building a temporary modular meeting and work space in Central Park in downtown Boulder.

“Work spaces are not typically public, like this,” said Marcel de Lange, senior instructor in the program of environmental design. “This project brings people together in an open public space. It’s been a super fun project.”

Aaron Clauset, assistant professor of computer science and faculty member of the BioFrontiers Institute, recently accepted the 2016 Erdős-Rényi Prize in Network Science. The international prize is awarded annually to a researcher under 40 who has made fundamental contributions to the advancement of network science.

Network science is an interdisciplinary field dedicated to understanding the structure and function of networks in all domains, from social networks to biological networks to technological networks.

Opioids like morphine have now been shown to paradoxically cause an increase in chronic pain in lab rats, findings that could have far-reaching implications for humans.

Led by Assistant Research Professor Peter Grace and Distinguished Professor Linda Watkins, the study showed that just a few days of morphine treatment caused chronic pain that went on for several months by exacerbating the release of pain signals from specific immune cells in the spinal cord. The results suggest that the recent escalation of opioid prescriptions in humans may be a contributor to chronic pain.

“We are showing for the first time that even a brief exposure to opioids can have long-term negative effects on pain,” said Grace of the Department of Psychology and Neuroscience. “We found the treatment was contributing to the problem.”

Famous for its lack of parking and draconian crackdown on 420 gatherings, the University of Colorado is a perpetual middle top tier denizen in the Playboy rankings, which is more than I can say for its academic ranking. Though there are occasional pockets of excellence, the corporatization of this once noble University has rendered it bland and toothless. Maybe someday they will drop football and get serious about academic excellence, but the tail continues to wag the dog at CU.

This only pertains to a single aspect of disability services: access to a powered cart. Recently, I suffered a collapsed lung which required a chest tube, an unpleasant experience. Exacerbating this via walking can cause a recollapse and thus, another procedure. As I need to finish my final exams, walking to and from class is required. When I tried to contact Wardenberg they sent me to disability services, when I called disability services they sent me to dean of students, when I called the dean of students I was told that there is no available kart for students needing one. The representative stated that she too has been upset for a while that such a service does not exist for students in need. Gardeners have karts, and I have seen non-gardener karts on campus which I presume belong to sports related departments on campus, so why can't this university buy a single kart for disability services? Not only that, but despite demand from students AND CU Boulder representatives, no one is willing to make a change.

I am sick and tired of the school prioritizing sports over academics. So many academic buildings are built way off campus while the sports complexes are being built in center campus. Honestly, if their sports teams were good I would be more willing to have a 35 minute plus walk to class. Sadly, the sports teams absolutely suck, which means I am walking that extra distance to east campus for absolutely nothing!

Gosh I remember my first day. Went in and all I could see were the "thanks for filling up my wallet" looks on the faces of every darn faculty. If ya'll want to throw your gold down the well, be my guest. Then get into the corral with bucky the spearheaded bull, since that's how debt is gonna feel like. Getting trampled by the government's heavy hoofs for the rest of ya'll infinite life. Your welcome, for your damn suits. Anything else I can buy you, you white collar pricks?

I think this school is a terrible, terrible place. Bonnie, my friend, went to this school, and absolutely HATED it, all she did was call me day and night complaining, "WAHHHH" she'd say "I hate this school!"

I spent eight years after my undergraduate degree being an elementary art teacher and hating it, but slowly working on my paintings so I could apply to graduate school. During my interview for CU, I was asked questions about my paintings I had never heard before, questions I couldn’t answer. As hard as it was having the rug pulled out beneath me, the interview felt strangely cathartic, I knew CU was where I wanted to study so I could one day answer those questions I couldn’t at my interview. I believed graduate school would help me find a deeper understanding of the world, my own art and a place that would give me the skills to start my art career. I have no idea if going to graduate school was a good idea. Graduate school has been the most humbling experience of my life. It didn’t turn out the way I thought it would. Now that I’m about to graduate, I feel I finally have the skills to apply to graduate school. After a particularly bad day at school I was reminded of the movie Gaslight, about a woman whose husband makes her believe she was crazy when she saw a gaslight becoming dim. When people asked me what graduate school was like, I would say, “Gas Lighting”. I often felt as though I was going crazy but there is something crazy about making art. I truly believe humans need other humans to grow and those who resist change get stuck. It seems the students that embrace humility get the most out of their time at school or perhaps that’s just what I want to believe. I forget all too often to do what makes me happy and make art that was important to me. When asked what I learned in graduate school I say “I learned where the bar is in the art world”. Meaning what makes art spectacular enough to be special. I have the ability to see the bar now, but have no idea how to get near it.

Really beautiful campus. Open to walk around and see it for yourself at your own pace. Stadium has a wonderful view, and the grounds/facilities are well kept.

If you are doing CSCI major expect the following; 1) Completely useless TA's for recitation --- Pretty much all grad students that are either Indian or Chinese with "heavy" accent. I have no idea why anyone would hire a teacher who can't speak the native tongue or communicate what they are trying to teach. It is absolutely mind boggling. And worst of all, they've got absolutely no desire to help you during their office hours or recitation. They are just there to get free tuition assistance from the school for being a TA. 2) Professor's that will have somewhat useful lectures --- Expect to google 24/7 and learn everything by yourself --- With or without the TA or professor, not much will change. --- This could literally be a online class with just assignments and tests which would be probably better. Then I don't have to bother to go recitation or lectures just to hear about the little changes here and there for the homework, due dates, tests, and other stuff alike. --- The TA's and prof's have <> 3) Any other CSCI help room is pretty much useless. --- Cannot articulate simple concepts. For godsakes these students they choose to help you can't explain anything. They know the material and understand it themselves, but they can't communicate that to you. I completely understand that for most majors, it is pretty much just you and the material, but there should be guidance to help you learn this material, and the CSCI department offers absolutely zero help.
