Abstract:

The Physiological and Behavioral Neuroscience in Juveniles (PBNJ) laboratory focuses on relating changes in brain function to changes in cognitive ability during the postnatal period. We are a highly interdisciplinary laboratory tampering with genes, fiddling about with proteins and cells, poking and prodding at the physiological level, and assessing behavior in rodent models. We also train little wormy critters to jump through hoops and piece together little DNA snippets to make better optical physiological tools. All of this plays during matinees and nightly here at the Krasnow Institute. No tickets are necessary to observe, just wide eyes and an open mind.
