Monday, September 30th from 6:00-7:00 is our first Journal Club of the year! At each Journal Club, we will be going through and discussing an academic neuroscience paper as a group in a way that everyone can understand. It’s a fantastic way to learn the ins and outs of reading scientific papers and about some of the newest innovations in the field of Neuroscience. This week, we will be discussing a paper that presents a strategy to better study variants of human genes that are implicated in various cognitive disorders, such as Autism Spectrum Disorder, using model organisms, genetic engineering and automated machine vision. This paper was written by a PhD candidate from right here at UBC!
Hope to see you there!
