Friday Seminar Replacement Activity - Apr 27th

Stress and the Synapse
Dr. Jaideep Bains
University of Calgary
April 23rd NIH Neuroscience Seminar

Dr. Bains presented the work of two of his graduate students, looking at neurons that coordinate an organism's response to stress.  What I found most interesting about this talk was their research showing that the synapses being studied store information differently when stresses are repeatedly applied.
