presents, “Hormonal regulation of gene expression defines sex-variable biology”

Talk abstract:  My lab studies how nuclear hormone receptors modulate gene expression in the brain at single-cell resolution, and how this affects development of and activity within circuits that mediate specific behaviors. We anticipate that the hormone-regulated genes we have identified will contribute to established sex differences in the incidence and etiology of neurological and psychiatric disorders.
