Club Announces The Thomas Karger Award

The J. B. Johnston Club for Evolutionary Neuroscience is proud to announce the establishment of The Thomas Karger Award, in honor of Dr. Thomas Karger, who has been a generous supporter of the Club for 28 years.  The award is for a young investigator who is a candidate for the Ph.D. or who is within a year of having received the Ph.D. and whose research is in the area of evolutionary neuroscience.  Details can be found under "Student Funding."
The JBJC annual meeting will be held in San Diego, Nov. 10-11, 2016. The Karger Workshop will be Organized by Anat Barnea and Tom Smulders on The Hippocampus: Questions of Homology.

Graduate positions available in behavioral neurogenomics/neuroethology, University of Nebraska at Omaha

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…

The Research Works Act

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:

  • Does Karger have a position on this?
  • Does…

Demonstrating syngeny

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…

Non-nuclear nano neurons

(Crossposted from NeuroDojo)

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!…
