School of Psychology and Neuroscience Seminar: Dr Corey Bamiel (NYU) "Afferent control of local and long-range circuits in the nucleus accumbens"
Our second speaker this semester will be Dr Corey Bamiel (NYU), on “Afferent control of local and long-range circuits in the nucleus accumbens”. This talk will be hosted by Simon Sharples (Gareth Miles lab), and will take place at 4pm on Friday 29th.
Corey is a postdoctoral researcher in the lab of Prof Adam Carter, who studies the neurons, synapses and circuits in the prefrontal cortex, nucleus accumbens and related brain regions. These diverse networks contribute to high-level brain function, including both cognitive and motivated behaviors. Dysfunction of these areas is also linked to disorders such as schizophrenia, anxiety, and drug addiction. They broadly study how different populations of neurons communicate in their local and long-range networks using a combination of imaging and electrophysiology.
We hope to see you all there!
All the best,
Erin and Maarten
