'Neuro@Noon'Event Details: 12:00 p.m., January 07, Schwitalla Hall M360
Neuro@Noon, SLU's Neuroscience Journal Club, will meet at noon Thursday, Jan. 7 in room M360 of the School of Medicine.
Scott Zahm, Ph.D., will be presenting a recent Neuron paper that used spike recordings from the anterior cingulate cortex and the lateral habenula of awake animals. The investigators found evidence that these structures may evaluate the outcomes of an animal's behavior and adjust its future behaviors.
The article is titled "Roles of the Lateral Habenula and Anterior Cingulate Cortex in Negative Outcome Monitoring and Behavioral Adjustment in Nonhuman Primates."
This interdepartmental journal club is affiliated with the Center for Neuroscience of Saint Louis University.
During the 2015-16 academic year, the club will meet on the first Thursday of each month.
