    REGISTER NOW! The job of the postdoctoral fellow is, simply put, to get another job. Postdocs face significant challenges posed by the need to quickly learn a new field and formulate new hypotheses. As such, successfully navigating the postdoc-PI relationship is essential to the success and wellness of the postdoc. In this webinar, panelists will discuss ‘fit’ in a postdoc position, building a collaborative relationship between the postdoc and PI, and planning for the next career step. Learning objectives: At the conclusion of the webinar, you will gain insights from several different career stages and perspectives regarding: How to define, for yourself, the purpose of a postdoctoral position Different things to value or consider with respect to finding the right ‘fit’ for a postdoctoral lab Strategies to build a collaborative, mutually beneficial relationship between a postdoc and a PI Some examples for how one might navigate a difficult conversation between a postdoc and a PI

    REGISTER NOW! Join this interactive session as Dr. Felix Felmy and Dr. Nikolaos Kladisios discuss their paper, “Synaptic Mechanisms underlying Temporally Precise Information Processing in the VNLL, an auditory brainstem nucleus”, with JNeurosci Reviewing Editor Ruth Anne Eatock. Attendees can submit questions at registration and live during the webinar. Below is the significance statement of the paper published on June 22, 2022, in JNeurosci and authored by Nikolaos Kladisios, Linda Fischer, Florian Jenzen, Michael Rebhan, Christian Leibold, and Felix Felmy Auditory information processing in the brainstem is a prerequisite for generating our auditory representation of the environment. Thereby, many processing steps rely on temporally precise filtering. Precise feed forward inhibition is a key motif in auditory brainstem processing and produced through sign inversion at several large somatic excitatory synapses. A particular feature of the ventral nucleus of the lateral lemniscus is to produce temporally precise onset inhibition with little temporal variance independent of sound intensity. Our cell-physiology and modeling data explain how the synaptic characteristics of different current components and their short-term plasticity are tuned to establish sound intensity-invariant onset inhibition that is crucial for filtering out spurious frequency information.

    REGISTER NOW! Social media has profoundly changed the ways information is communicated and news can be manipulated by groups, aimed at spreading their opinions rather than scientifically verified data. Consequently, communication has become more difficult for researchers who had to modify the way they communicate in order to meet public attention. During this online event, panelists will discuss and try to understand the context in which fake-news develops, the basis for behaviors associated with fake-news and the brain areas and neurotransmitters associated with those behaviors. This webinar is a follow up of the in-person event organized at the FENS Forum 2022 on the same topic. As background, you are encouraged to watch ahead of the live webinar the recording of the in-person event. Watch the recording here or on YouTube. If you have not already, please watch the special interest event organized at the FENS Forum on Why Fake News is So Fascinating to the Brain. You will need to login to your FENS account to watch this recording.

    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.

    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.

    Demystifying the Academic Chalk Talk

    Chalk Talk Live Chat Of all the parts of the faculty job hiring process, the academic chalk talk can be the most mysterious. In this live chat, faculty members will discuss their experiences on both sides of the hiring committee, and will answer your questions about preparing, giving, and evaluating academic chalk talks. Whether you’re a postdoc or graduate student preparing to go on the job market or a faculty member sitting on a hiring committee, this live chat is relevant for you. Participants are encouraged to submit questions in advance of the live chat in the discussion thread below. You may direct questions to specific facilitators by tagging their usernames: @arianna_maffei @constanza.cortes @farran_briggs @xiong Related resources: Video and Q&A: Your Chalk Talk Questions Answered Webinar On-demand: Demystifying the Academic Chalk Talk Facilitators Arianna Maffei, PhD Arianna Maffei is an associate professor in the department of neurobiology and behavior at State University of New York (SUNY) - Stony Brook, where her research focuses on understanding how experience and learning modulate neural circuit connectivity and function.
