Motivation Conference in Cologne, Germany

Sports University of Cologne, September, 4-5 2009

www.motivationscience.org

The World Society of Motivation Scientists and Professionals, a nonprofit organization, will hold its first annual meeting and conference on September 4-5 2009 at the Sports University of Cologne.

Presentations are scheduled on recent applications of motivation theory for business, sports, wellness, counseling, and disabilities (including autism). Both German and English language presentations have been scheduled; all slides will be in both languages.

The business presentations are focused on various topics including leadership and selling. The sports and wellness presentations are focused on world championship level athletic consultation and large population wellness programs. The counseling session is focused on executive coaching, academic motivation, romantic relationships, and hospice counseling. The disabilities presentations are focused on autism, intellectual disabilities, and anxiety.

The Society’s first membership meeting will be held at the conference on the afternoon of September 4. The conference registration fee is € z00 ($250) and include 1-year membership in the Society.

Business consultants, coaches, psychologists, psychiatrists, educators, HR experts, corporate managers, disabilities experts and leaders should attend, as well as anyone interested in the new practical applications of motivations science.

A second conference will be held in September, 2010 in Chicago and a third September 2011 in Vienna, Austria . Members interested in presenting at the Chicago conference should send an English-language abstract and statement of personal qualifications to Professor Steven Reiss no later than December 1, 2009 .

Presentations should be focused on practical activities — including business, sports, psychology, and medicine — or on research relating motivation to the Big 5, normal versus abnormal personality, or psychopathology.

Peter Boltersdorf is interim Society President and Professor Steven Reiss is the Society Executive Director.

Abstract

Previous investigations have shown that the perception of socially relevant facial expressions, indicating someone else’s intention to communicate (e.g., smiling), correlate with increased activity in zygomaticus major muscle regardless of whether the facial expressions seen are directed towards the human observer or toward someone else (Mojzisch et al., 2006). These spontaneous, involuntary reactions have been described as facial mimicry and seem to be of considerable importance for successful interpersonal communication. We investigated whether specific neural substrates underlie these responses by performing a finite impulse response (FIR) analysis of an experiment using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to investigate the perception of socially relevant facial expressions (Schilbach et al., 2006). This analysis demonstrates that differential neural activity can be detected relative to the FIR time window in which facial mimicry occurs. The neural network found includes but extends beyond classical motor regions (face motor area) recruiting brain regions known to be involved in social cognition. This network is proposed to subserve the integration of emotional and action-related processes as part of a pre-reflective, embodied reaction to the perception of socially relevant facial expressions as well as a reflective representation of self and other.
