A fun collaboration with the Dent Lab was just published in PLoS One!
In this study, we show that there are sex differences in the auditory brainstem responses of Long Evans rats to pure tones, particularly at low (1 and 4 kHz) and high (32 and 42 kHz) frequencies. Check it out here.
Congratulations to Kelcie on her second first-author paper. Here, she shows that adolescent male rats exhibit higher social reinforcement responding than adolescent female rats. Furthermore, she showed that this sex difference is absent in adolescent Brattleboro rats, which lack the neuropeptide vasopressin!
Brianna presented her poster at the Annual Summer Collegiate Science and Technology Entry Program (CSTEP) Symposium at UB. She did such a great job that she was selected to present her poster at the Statewide CSTEP Conference and given a travel award!
