It was exhilarating to catch up with our Neuroscience and Biology CNC/MCD graduate students and faculty at the Graduate Center Retreat this past weekend. Lots of exciting research across the CUNY campuses.
We are holding a semester full of great talks at the GC Collaborative Neuroscience seminar series.
Great work by our fantastic summer students in the lab. Good luck in your Fall 2018 endeavors. Happy to have Asher stay on for the academic year and work on more projects.
I'm looking forward to sharing some of our new work next week at the Works In Progress ASRC Neuroscience seminar series.

Inhibitory signaling sculpts communication in prefrontal–amygdala–basal forebrain network during emotion regulation
Margo's awesome work in the lab on neural activity in the Basal Forebrain during threatening and non-threatening stimuli was recognized by the Jonas E. Salk Scholarship for the study of biomedical sciences. Congrats to Margo all around as she moves on to study and do more research at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mt. Sinai!

A great team effort on the part of the undergraduates in the lab!
I'm happy to take part in the "Computational and affective neuroscience: algorithms for survival" workshop at Cosyne, organized by Dominik Bach and Robb Rutledge,
I'll be sharing some new data about the link between oscillations and interneurons in the prefrontal - amygdala circuit during emotional learning.
