Department of Neuroscience
Neuroscience is the scientific study of nervous systems. The field encompasses the anatomy, behavioral functions, biochemistry, development, evolution, genetics, pharmacology, and physiology of nervous systems as well as biologically inspired robotics and prosthetics, computational modeling, and mechanisms of neurological and psychiatric diseases. The Department of Neuroscience is devoted to education and research in this remarkably interdisciplinary and dynamic field of modern science. Research in the Department of Neuroscience emphasizes analysis of neural circuits as it pertains to cellular, developmental, molecular and systems neurobiology, neuroethology, and neurogenetics.
Neuroscience Colloquiums are jointly supported by the Neuroscience Department and the Graduate Interdisciplinary Program in Neuroscience.
Many colloquiums are live streamed. Join from PC, Mac, Linux, iOS or Android using Zoom. A link to the specific seminar will be posted here 30 minutes prior to each streamed event.
The link is as follows for the seminar on Tuesday, December 3rd with Dr. Paul Taghert:
Dr. Irina Sinakevitch & Nat Klein Publish in JoVe
Dr. Irina Sinakevitch's paper titled, "Anti-RDL and Anti-mGlutR1 Receptors Antibody Testing in Honeybee Brain Sections using CRISPR-Cas9" , has been accepted by the Journal of Visualized Experiments (JoVE). Dr. Sinakevitch is with the Gronenberg Lab and Nat Klein, a co-author of the paper, is with the Bhattacharya Lab. Both labs are in the Department of Neuroscience. Congratulations to all the authors on this paper.
