Sensory Physiology Club: Brain Day 2018

77 kids from New Haven schools came to Yale today to hear about science at our Sensory Physiology Club!

Today’s topic was the sense of touch. Thanks to Viktor, Sarah, Evan and Jon for making it possible!

Eve’s Beckman Fellowship extended

Eve receives a third year extension of her Beckman Postdoctoral Fellowship!

Congratulations, Eve!

Dabbling with Piezo2

A great commentary in PNAS by Ruhma Syeda on our latest paper on the sense of touch in duck neurons!

Ducks in Science News

Our latest duck story was covered in Science News – a very nice takeaway by Roni Dengler:

PNAS

Our new paper on Piezo2 and mechanosensitivity in duck trigeminal neurons is out in PNAS!
