Julia Iourinets, UR senior, presents at Society of Neuroscience Annual Meeting
Congratulations to Julia Iourinets on her poster presentation 'The hippocampus projects to bed nucleus of the stria terminalis but not the central amygdala nucleus in primate'.
Her project reveals a that a key circuit involved in 'threat monitoring' may be slightly different in human and nonhuman primate species compared to rodents. Here Julia presents her work to another investigator.

Giovanna Braganza at University of Rochester Undergraduate Science Day
Giovanna, a junior at the UR, presented her original work on Oct 16. Her poster entitled
Thalamic Inputs to the Extended Amygdala in Primateswas visited by students and faculty. Her work is the result of a busy summer in the lab, which extended into additional work during the fall as she prepared and analyzed her data.

Brian Ho wins scholarship competition
Brian's work showing axons originating from cells in the bed nucleus of the stria terminalis overlying the
dorsal tiersubpopulation of dopamine cells (pink dots).
Congratulations to Brian Ho, a rising senior at the University of Rochester, who has been in the Fudge lab since January. Brian was the winner of a competition sponsored by Delta Sonic, that assists promising students with a cash scholarship. In our lab, Brian's work focuses on how brain regions involved in threat responses, such as the bed nucleus of the stria terminalis and central amygdala nucleus, interact with specific dopamine neuron subpopulations.
