What's going on in the lab?
The team is growing! Welcome to Brandeis Undergraduates Zachary Fournier and Gabriel Haithcock. They will become first-class animal whisperers.
Christine is starting teaching. NBIO240 "Principles of Neuroscience Research" will be a lot of fun and a lot of work. Hodgkin-Huxley papers, here we come!
We are delighted to have Mike Vivian join the lab for his graduate studies! Mike is a second-year PhD student in the Neuroscience Graduate Program. Prior to joining Brandeis, he received a B.S. in Neuroscience with minors in Chemistry and Neuroengineering from the University of Alabama at Birmingham. Mike is currently exploring how spatial representations in the hippocampus update during reversal learning. In his free time, you can find him reading historical nonfiction, wandering the streets of Waltham, and socializing with other students in the Life Sciences. Welcome, Mike!
The lab welcomes three more rotation students. Welcome Adriana Prada, Kirsten Judge, and Mike Vivian. Let the sciencing begin!
The lab welcomes Aanchal Bhatia, postdoctoral fellow. Aanchal will kick off the in vivo whole-cell recordings in the lab!
Happy New Year!
Christine gives a talk at the 2022 Park City Winter Conference on Learning and Memory.
The lab welcomes its first two rotation students. Welcome Rico Rodriguez and Edward L. Rivera! We look forward to doing a lot of science together!
The lab is featured in the Brandeis Hoot. Thanks a lot to Shruthi Manjunath for the interview.
Christine's latest research is out as a pre-print. Our work demonstrates a new role for the entorhinal cortex as instructor of learning-related place cell representations in CA1. No study is ever perfect, so comments are welcome!
Natalie joins the lab as technician. Welcome Natalie!
Christine gave a talk at Brandeis' annual Volen retreat (held in a beautiful hotel on the beach on Cape Cod).
Setting up the lab is underway!
The lab is officially open!
Christine is an instructor at the Cold Spring Harbor Ion Channel Course. Despite being virtual, everyone got to patch. It was a lot of fun!
Christine gave at talk at the International Conference of Mathematical Neuroscience. You can find the talk on Youtube. Check it out. Any feedback is welcome.
