The university community is invited to join NeuroCAST & TNI for a special seminar with guest speaker, Rebecca Shansky, PhD. Rebecca Shansky earned her Ph.D. in Neurobiology at Yale University and completed postdoctoral work at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine before joining the faculty in the Psychology Department at Northeastern in 2011. She directs the Laboratory of Neuroanatomy and Behavior, where her team uses rodent models to explore the links between brain structure and function, focusing on how individual differences in response to trauma shape long-term memories. She is a vocal advocate for gender and sex equity in experimental design, highlighted recently in her Science Magazine Perspective piece, “Are hormones a ‘female problem’ for animal research?” 

The talk will be held in-person and virtually on Thursday, April 21, 2022 from 12 to 1 p.m. Dr. Shansky will present, "A Neural Basis for Sex Differences in Fear Responses”
