Staci Bilbo – Associations between maternal cytokine levels during gestation and measures of child cognitive abilities and executive functioning

Next Monday October 1 from 5:30-6:30 in IKB 185 is our first Journal Club of the year! Each Journal Club we will be analyzing an academic neuroscience paper as a group, and ensuring everyone understands the context. This week, we will be discussing a paper on the effects of cytokines released by the maternal and fetal immune system on fetal brain development. This is in preparation for the author, Dr. Staci D. Bilbo (from Harvard Medical School) to present at the Centre for Brain Health at UBC this Friday!
