First In Family Speaker Series features Jeffrey Burgdorf on Wednesday, April 4. Dr. Burgdorf will present "The Neurobiology of Positive Emotions: from laughing rats to a novel antidepressant in clinical trials for depression."  Stop in the science library to peruse a selection of books from our neurobiology section, on exhibit in conjunction with Burgdorf's talk.

Copies of recent papers by Burgdorf and collaborators are also on display, including "Frequency modulated 50 kHz ultrasonic vocalizations reflect a positive emotional state in the rat : neural substrates and therapeutic implications" by Jeffrey Burgdorf and Joseph R. Moskal in Handbook of behavioral neuroscience, v. 19.

From the OC Events calendar:
First In Family Speaker Series
WHEN: 4:30pm - 6:00pm
WHERE: Science Center, Norman C. Craig ’53 Lecture Hall @ 119 Woodland Street, Oberlin, OH 44074

Dr. Burgdorf earned a doctorate in 2005 at Bowling Green State University, where he validated that rat ultrasonic vocalizations reflect distinct positive and negative emotional states relevant to depression, and further explored the neuronal basis of these vocalizations.
