The Center for Motor Neuron Disease (CMND) is launching an internal call (U Chicago labs only) for CMND Trainer & Trainee Pilot Awards, a new funding opportunity to support the generation of exploratory data in the field of motor neuron disease. This is a unique funding opportunity designed for graduate student/Principal Investigator (PI) pairs or postdoc/PI pairs.
Professor David Gallo (Psychology) highlights the difference between working memory and long-term memory in The New York Times.
A UChicago-led team of physicians, neuroscientists, and bioengineers received $3.99M from the NIH to create an implantable device to restore the sense of touch in the breast after reconstructive surgery. The late and greatly missed professor Sliman Bensmaia was involved in this project.
Study by Shivang Sullere, PhD, and Professor Dan McGehee suggests a promising path to developing non-opioid painkillers.
The event, promoted by the Neuroscience Institute at the Q Center in St. Charles, had a diverse schedule full of talks presented by faculty members, students, and guests, poster presentations, and recreational activities.
New research conducted by Andrea King, professor of psychiatry and behavioral neuroscience at UChicago, found that very heavy drinkers display the same impairment as light drinkers when consuming their usual excessive amount.
A new study from researchers at the University of Chicago has found that neuronal population dynamics in the motor cortex are very different during reaching and grasping behavior, challenging a popular theory that indicated intrinsic, dynamic patterns control motor behaviors.
Proteins active in a neuron’s development can have powerful roles in its maintenance later: a “temporal modularity,” where proteins take on multiple roles at different times in a cell’s life.
The events of the last several months have compelled us to realize that many different groups of people have been systematically denied full and open participation in American life. Some devastatingly alarming events—lives extinguished for no reason—have left many of us questioning our contributions to injustice and how structures we take for granted bestow privilege to some of us over others.
