We posted our first preprint on BioRxiv on mechanosensitivty of Pacinian and Meissner Corpsucles!
Nikolaev YA, Feketa VV, Gracheva EO, Bagriantsev SN. Lamellar cells in Pacinian and Meissner corpuscles are touch sensors. BioRxiv 2020.2008.2024.265231.
This year our Sensory Physiology Club went online. We taught physiology to a group of wonderful students from Greater New Haven school. An unforgettable week!
Watch the video! Starring uber-scientists from Slav and Elena Labs at Yale!
Sarah and Elena and putting together outreach kits to be sent to each student.A Zoom proprioception test – the first of its kind.Viktor’s lecture on the sense of touch.Going though key scientific concepts.Sarah’s lab tour: calcium imaging experiment!Marco explain the two-plate preference test for temperature sensitivitySarah’s lecture on the sense of smell.Jenny’s lecture on the sense of taste.A wonderful group of science hungry students – THANK YOU!Bonus: the Ice Bucket Challenge!
