Current Students in the Lab

From left to right: Molly McGinnis ('09), Brittney Getz ('10), Amanda Ruscin ('09), Mazi Alimohamed ('09), Liz Miller ('09), and Lindsey Richardson ('09). These students are conducting a massive experiment to measure the effects of benzodiazepines on the licking responses to low, medium, and high concentrations of a variety of tastants. Data collection is complete. We are now in the midst of data analysis of the licking patterns.

Comming soon to a blog near you.

This blog will go active once we recieve funding for our collaborative project to investigate how benzodiazepine drugs (anti-anxiety meds) act to alter taste responses in a manner that increases consumption of food. It will be an easy way for members of each lab to update their daily progress on various projects.
