Alex and Andrew, IBH class of 2017 , are currently juniors. The inseparable "dyno-duo" kids who are crazy about raising octopi and studying sea slugs. They are co-first authors on a poster presentation on their research yesterday at the gargantuous Neuroscience 2015 meeting in Chicago.
Early yesterday morning they boarded a train for Chicago to attend the conference at McCormick Place. With 30,000 plus attendees, this is the largest conference dedicated to neuroscience in the world. They presented their poster “Computation Mechanisms in the Peripheral Nervous System of the Predatory Sea Slug Pleurobranchaea.” Their research centers on the effects of key neurotransmitters and their antagonists in behavioral and electrophysiological paradigms.
The boys said the presentation was a great experience to get off campus and showcase their research to other researchers, professors, and other students in a professional conference. Their travel was funded by the generous Travel Grants from the Office of Undergraduate Research.
