VIRTUAL Neural Circuits Club: Bridget Matikainen-Ankney (Kravitz lab, WashU Psychiatry), Keran Yang (Kepecs lab, WashU Neuroscience)

February 14, 2022
12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Zoom conference (Virtual)

Bridget Matikainen-Ankney: “Enhanced food motivation in obese mice is controlled by D1R-expressing neurons in the nucleus accumbens”
Keran Yang: “The role of cortico-tectum projections in action selection and decision-making in an escape paradigm”

The goal of the Neural Circuits Club is to provide a supportive community with a forum to present your work (or a published paper),  gain feedback, and improve you presentation skills. Work in progress, rotation projects, pre submission presentation for feedback, or work you think would be of interest to the community are welcomed. Presentations are 45 minutes with 15 minutes for questions and answers. 

Come learn about other WashU neuroscientists’ work and new developments in the field!

The club meets on the 2nd Monday of the month.
