The Department of Social Sciences is carrying forward its tradition of conducting seminars on diverse topics in the field of social sciences. This time the faculty of psychology arranged a seminar on “Neurosensory Perception and Reflexes in Human Cognitions”. Dr Omayr Mehmud, Rector, Behavioral Sciences Research Center, was the guest speaker. The purpose of conducting this seminar was to create awareness among students of psychology and related disciplines to understand the role of human reflexes that engender higher executive functioning of human capacities.
Professor Dr Abdul Hameed, Dean/Chairman SSS&H, graced the occasion with his presence along with the faculty of social sciences. Dr Iftikhar Ahmed welcomed Dr Omayr Mehmud, an expert in the field of neurosciences who earned his PhD degree in Clinical Psychology from USA. He talked about brain and human reflexes and its relation to our behaviors. He encouraged students to participate actively in the seminar. This was followed by a question and answer session.
Earlier, the seminar began with recitation from some verses of the Holy Quran by Rashid Khan. At the end, Prof Dr Abdul Hameed concluded the seminar and expressed his views on cognitive psychology. He explained how cognitive psychology emerged from computer sciences in the 1980’s. He invited Dr Omayr for another series of similar seminars in future.
Later, Prof Dr Abdul Hameed along with Dr Iftikhar Ahmed presented souvenir to the esteemed guest as a token of gratitude.
