    June's Neuronline Recap

    Extended Q&A: Exercise in Brain Health and Disease This resource has been adapted from the webinar, Exercise in Brain Health and Disease, which took place on April 28, 2022. In the full recording on Neuronline, Henriette van Praag, Áine Kelly, David Jiménez-Pavón, and Swathi Gujral discussed different mechanisms by which exercise positively influences brain health and function across the lifespan, from modulation of inflammation to regulation of adult neurogenesis. URL: https://community.sfn.org/index.php?/topic/5207-extended-qa-exercise-in-brain-health-and-disease/ How to Advocate for Mental Health Research In this panel, NMH Director Joshua Gordon, Maria Oquendo, Pat Kobor, Patricia Conrod, and Lori McMahon address current foundational research on mental health issues, advocacy efforts to increase public awareness and funding, and how the COVID-19 pandemic heightened the importance of addressing mental health across all ages. URL: https://neuronline.sfn.org/advocacy/how-to-advocate-for-mental-health-research How Models Clarify Our Understanding of the Brain Stephen Grossberg illustrates the importance of neural models by taking a close look at the stability-plasticity dilemma, and how neural models can help answer questions such as, how do we learn things quickly but remember them for a long time, or why does a fast-learning rate not force a fast-forgetting rate? URL: https://neuronline.sfn.org/scientific-research/how-models-clarify-our-understanding-of-the-brain How Science Communication Can Improve Your Career Effective science communication refers to the ability to discuss science in terms that your audience will understand. Read how scientists can communicate inwardly to colleagues, or outwardly with important stakeholders such as the public, government, industry, educators, or even scientists outside of one’s field.

    Register Here! Mala Murthy will highlight discoveries from her lab on the neural mechanisms and computations underlying social communication in the Drosophila model system and the many parallels with communication strategies in other animals, including humans. She will explain the important role of developing quantitative tools for studying behavior. She will also discuss the choices that led her and her lab down this research path and the role of effective communication in science.

    Exercise in Brain Health and Disease

    REGISTER HERE! This webinar is open access and registration is complimentary. Sedentary behavior is on the rise, resulting in an increased prevalence of preventable life-limiting diseases, including those affecting the brain. This is despite evidence showing that physical activity is one of the most important modifiable lifestyle factors that supports good brain health throughout life and improves quality of life in old age. In this webinar, we will discuss different mechanisms by which exercise positively influences brain health and function across the lifespan, from modulation of inflammation to regulation of adult neurogenesis.

    Register Here! Over the past seven years, an in situ chemical synthesis approach to biological systems has emerged, in which functional materials are assembled within tissues such as the brain – either constructed throughout the intact tissue (hydrogel-tissue chemistry/HTC), or genetically targeted to cell types (genetically-targeted chemical assembly/GTCA). Resulting hybrid materials are endowed with diverse capabilities, including anchoring and labeling of RNA and protein, in situ sequencing, transparency, reversible size changes, and electrical insulation or conduction.

    Register Here! Rebecca Shansky’s research investigates sexual dimorphism in fear circuitry using rodent models. Shansky’s lab integrates sophisticated behavioral analyses with high-resolution fluorescent microscopy to identify sex-specific patterns of fear expression, learning, and structural plasticity. She will discuss the challenges and surprises she’s encountered as a sex differences-focused behavioral neuroscientist, as well as her current advocacy for sex equity in animal research.
