    This half day program is designed for prospective freshmen (HS juniors and younger) and family members. Meet USC includes an information session on the University and the Admission process, a student led walking tour of campus, and a meeting with us in the Viterbi School. During the engineering session we will discuss the curriculum, research opportunities, hands-on projects, entrepreneurial support programs, and other aspects of the engineering school. Meet USC is designed to answer all of your questions about USC, the application process, and financial aid.

    Reservations are required for Meet USC. This program occurs twice, once at 8:30 a.m. and again at 12:30 p.m.

  • EEG Characteristics of Major Depressive Disorder Patients with Suicidal Symptoms

    Fri, Jan 25, 2019 @ 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

    Ming Hsieh Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars

    Speaker: Lars Benschop, Ghent Experimental Psychiatry Ghent University Hospital in Belgium

    Talk Title: EEG Characteristics of Major Depressive Disorder Patients with Suicidal Symptoms

    Biography: Lars Benschop is a PhD candidate from the Ghent Experimental Psychiatry (GHEP) lab at the Ghent University hospital in Belgium. He received his Master's degree in experimental and biological psychology from the University of Ghent.

    Lar's research focuses on identifying clinically relevant neural electrophysiological biomarkers in major depressive disorder (MDD) patients with a high risk of suicide. His first study applied a cluster-based permutation analysis on EEG spatial-frequency resting-state data to evaluate differences with respect to suicide risk.

    Currently, Lars is designing a combined resting state and task-based study in which 90 MDD patients with varying suicide risk will be shown death and life-related concepts (words and pictures) while undergoing EEG. The aim is to replicate the findings of the first study while also expanding into the time-frequency domain to further our understanding of the suicidal brain. Additionally, Lars will be applying machine learning techniques with the goal of differentiating between MDDs with and without suicide risk.

    Outside of his research interests, Lars enjoys composing music, scuba-diving, traveling and hiking.

    Are you interested in earning your MS from Viterbi? How about starting a MS degree during your senior year? The Viterbi Graduate Admission team is hosting a Progressive Degree information session.

    The Progressive Degree Program (PDP) gives continuing USC undergraduates another path to earning a Master's degree from USC. The main advantages to a Progressive Degree are:

    1) Start graduate-level classes during your senior year

    2) Reduce the units required for a Master's Degree

    More Progressive Degree information may be found by attending our information session and visiting http://viterbiundergrad.usc.edu/future/pdp/ or by emailing the Viterbi Graduate Admission team at: viterbi.pdp@usc.edu

    We look forward to seeing you on Friday January 25th.1-2pm. RTH 211
