Collaborative Co-transmission Project Funded!
Updated: Jul 24
We just received the Notice of Award for a new NIGMS project understanding how co-transmission of glutamate and octopamine work in the context of behavior in collaboration with Dr. Sarah Certel and the University of Montana and Dr. Steve Stowers at Montana State University. The goal of our component of this collaboration is to use octopamine and glutamate fluorescent sensors to understand the in vivo dynamics of VPM4 and VPM1 neurons in the context of aggression and courtship. We will also be looking at how alcohol alters these responses.
