April 25th Lunch

Conscious breathing and the brainstem
On April 25th, Professor Jack Feldman of UCLA will be joining us at our regular Lunch with the Neuroscience Director. In addition to asking logistical and curricular questions about the Neuroscience Major, students will also get a chance to meet one of the most creative and successful circuit analysts in neuroscience. Prof Feldman’s work focuses on the neural control of breathing. Just last month, his group demonstrated that pre-motor breathing control neurons also control an animal’s general arousal state. This work provides a potential mechanistic window into the widespread of conscious breathing to control one’s emotional state. Prof Feldman was also a graduate student at UChicago, completing his thesis with the mathematician Jack Cowan. He would be happy to talk with students about the varied paths to a life in neuroscience. Sign up now for what is sure to be an exciting conversation.
