First, I must say that I cannot believe it’s already mid-April, 2016! I wanted to write this post several weeks ago. Needless to say, I am very happy to share my four(!) most recent publications: two first-author papers from my current postdoctoral research, one first-author perspectives piece/review paper that came out of my PhD research, and a second-
author paper from a collaborative project that I was a part of a few years ago. I am very proud of these papers, which could not have been possible without all the hard work and support from my co-authors, lab mates, and mentors. Please read, enjoy, and share! You can click the titles below for links to the papers.
Meanwhile, I am working on the aims of our (relatively) new, NIH-funded grant to characterize oxytocin receptor expression in the brains of humans and to compare the levels of that expression between individuals who had autism and neurotypically developing individuals. Here’s a recent shot of me in the lab (“in da hood”?) preparing a large amount of solution to counterstain ~270 microscope slides of human brain sections, in order to help us better identify neuroanatomical landmarks during our analysis.
