Bring your lunch and join us for an hour every Friday at 1 p.m. for our Brown Bag Neuroscience Talks (BYOL). Every other week a student or faculty will give a talk ripped from the latest (or close to it) journal headlines. Most Meetings will be in LIB 020.
- FEB 1: Serenading the Fly: Neural control of courtship song in Drosophila by Siddharth Ramakrishnan, Biology, Neuroscience. Wheelock Rotunda
Discussion Article: "Neuronal Control of Drosophila Courtship Song - Philipsborn et al 2011, Neuron 69, 509-522"
- FEB 15: The neuroscience of face perception and the debate over the function of fusiform face area (FFA) by David Andresen, Psychology. LIB 020
Discussion Article: Electrical stimulation of human fusiform face-selective regions distort face perception by Parvizi et al. 2012. Additional Review Papers: 1 | 2 < br />
- MAR 29: Identification of the spinal circuitry involved in stepping and standing in complete spinal cord transected mice by Yung Kim, Exercise Science, LIB 020
Discussion Article: The Use of PRV-Bartha to Define Premotor Inputs to Lumbar Motoneurons in the Neonatal Spinal Cord of the Mouse by Jovanovic et al. 2010.
- APR 12: Our journal club this Friday will be a virtual one with Dr. Ann E Fink Skyping in from New York University. Her topic is "Noradrenergic Modulation of Lateral Amygdala Neurons." Dr. Ann Fink is currently a postdoctoral scholar in the LeDoux laboratory at the Center for Neural Science at New York University. She is investigating neural circuits in the amygdala using a host of electrophysiological and optogenetic techniques. She graduated from UCLA in 2008 with a PhD in Neuroscience during which she investigated LTP in the hippocampus with Dr. Thomas O Dell.
Location: WYATT 326
Discussion Article: The Amygdala
- APR 26: Spatial Relationships Between GABAergic and Glutamatergic Synapses on the Dendrites of Mouse Retinal Ganglion Cells Across Development by Adam Bleckert, University of Washington, LIB 020
