Xiaowen's paper was accepted today by the Journal of Neuroscience. The paper is about changes in calcium influx at endbulbs following changes in acoustic conditions. Nicole pitched in to show changes in the contributions of different Ca channels to the EPSC. The culmination of a lot of hard work! Congratulations!
Nicole was honored to receive the Graduate Student Excellence in Teaching Award, for her work as a TA in Cell Biology, and also for her mentoring of undergraduates in research, in and out of the lab. Way to go Nicole!
Matthew and Nicole attended the annual Association for Research in Otolaryngology (ARO) Midwinter Meeting in San Jose, CA. Nicole showed a poster about her work figuring out how activity drives changes in auditory nerve synapses. Great job, Nicole!
