For ten days, our collaborator Paul Manger from the University of the Witwatersrand, South Africa, came to Japan to visit our laboratory. He gave an exciting talk about his research on comparative neuroanatomy to students, researchers and professors of Hokkaido University.
At the annual meeting of the Cetology Society in Fukuoka, we proudly presented current findings of our research on large brain evolution.
Soon we will start with the homogenization and cell counting of Baird’s Bake Whale brain, and definitely we need additional hands to process this enormous brain. Fortunately two new staff members joined our laboratories today: Hinako Katsushima & Masakazu Hoshino. We’re pleased to have them in our group and besides that, they really did a fantastic job during cow brain homogenization practice!
