Seminar: Thomas A. Blanpied, PhD, “Molecular Nanopositioning and Alignment Control Function of Single Synapses”

April 20 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

I graduated from Yale University with a bachelor’s degree in psychology. My long-standing interest in cognition and learning has lead to my current work to understand the cellular processes that underlie mental health and psychiatric disorder. At the University of Pittsburgh, I obtained a Ph.D. in the Department of Neuroscience with Jon Johnson, Ph.D., where I used single-channel recordings to study the mechanisms by which the anti-Parkinsonian and anti-Alzheimer’s drugs amantadine and memantine act on NMDA receptors.

Seminar: Carissa Cascio, PhD, “Sense and Sensibility: Somatic Perception and Affect in Autism Spectrum Disorder”

April 27 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

My graduate training was in neuroscience at Emory University. My work was centered on sensory neuroscience applied to human and nonhuman primates, with an emphasis on tactile perception and functional imaging. Having developed an interest in the neuroscience of autism, I pursued postdoctoral studies at the Neurodevelopmental Disorders Research Center at the University of North Carolina.
