Senior Team Update: Team RITALIN

This past November, seven members of senior Team RITALIN (Brian Barnett, Valerie Cohen, Taylor Hearn, Emily Jones, Alice Kunin, Jessica Lee, and Gautam Rao) attended Neuroscience 2013, the 43rd annual meeting of the Society for Neuroscience. This conference gathered over 30,000 neuroscientists from across the globe in San Diego to share ideas and interests about current and future projects. Held over a span of five days, the conference is In addition to viewing dozens of posters and attending several lectures, Brian, Taylor, Jessica, and Gautam presented their team's project, Impact of Prenatal Nicotine Exposure on Impulsivity and Neural Activity in Medial Prefrontal Cortex. 
"It was amazing to see almost every neuroscientist in the country in one place. It was an extraordinary example of how collaborative the scientific process can be" -Taylor Hearn

Somehow, team RITALIN managed to leave the bliss of sunny San Diego and return to College Park, where they are now fully concentrated on finishing their thesis.
They hope that some of their newly-made connections will add unique insights to their final product and are excited to finish senior year strong!
