Welcome to the official site of the J. B. Johnston Club for Evolutionary Neuroscience
The annual meetings of the J. B. Johnston Club for Evolutionary Neuroscience will be held on November 9th and 10th 2017 at the College Park Marriott in Hyattsville, MD. This lovely hotel is next to the University of Maryland and there is a free shuttle to take you to the metro if you’d like to stay for the duration of SFN as well.
The Karger Workshop in Evolutionary Neuroscience will be on Thursday, and the JBJC annual meeting on Friday. The Workshop this year is being organized by Ashley Morhardt , and the title is “From fossils to function: integrative and taxonomically-inclusive approaches to vertebrate evolutionary neuroscience”. You will be able to see the names of the participants and their talk titles on the website when it is available.
Hi, allOne simple question.We know about Lettvin- Maturana article. However, I have heard that both in the behavioral and ( I am not absolutely sure) even in electrophysiological experiments the real…Continue

The Wong lab is seeking applications for graduate student positions (Master’s or Ph.D.). The lab is broadly interested in the proximate mechanisms of variation in complex behaviors. We employ an integrative approach to understand the molecular and neural mechanisms of stress coping and related behaviors. More specifically, we examine the network of brain regions that modulate variation in stress coping and explore the neural and neurotranscriptomic mechanisms underlying observed interaction…Continue

There has been a lot of discussion online about the Research Works Act, an American bill (discussed here) that would make it illegal for a US government agency to have policies requiring research they fund be available as open access. As far as I know, only NIH does this now.
I would like to know:

There’s much excitement about a new paper in Science that shows how ants have hidden potential. In short, there are a few species of ants that can produce “supersoldiers”. Other ant species, however, can also make supersoliders when they are experimentally give the right dose of hormone.
Crudely, it looks like the ants’ ancestors had the ability by changing the hormone levels, but the pathway that was sensitive to the hormone remained. When species started to evolve differences in…Continue

Living things are made out of cells. Most people with even a passing familiarity with cells knows some of the parts that they have. A membrane to keep the outside out and the inside in. Some mitochondria for energy. Some endoplasmic reticulum to make your proteins. But the part of the cell that is the most familiar, the most famous, the big mac daddy of organelles, is the home of DNA, the center, the nucleus.
But now, my friends!…Continue
