In a serious of publication in the Journal of Comparative Neurology, in collaboration with the laboratory of Paul Manger, University of the Witwatersrand, South Africa, we examined the anatomy of the amygdala, the diencephalon and the hippocampus of the feliform banded mongoose and the caniform domestic ferret.
Welcome to the Lab!
Minasa (left) and Suzuka (right) are 4th year students who joined our lab this April. Minasa will be working on the amygdala of whales and Suzuka will analyses the hippocampus of Pinnipeds. Welcome and good luck!
