Huge congrats to Eden Barragan who presented her dissertation exit seminar today entitled “D-serine is a Determinant of Non-Ionotropic LTD” on a project that she initiated during the COVID19 pandemic with some incredibly cool results we cannot wait to share. I am so proud of everything Eden has accomplished in the lab and for her amazing perseverance through both the pandemic and some experimental bad luck. Congrats Dr. Barragan!
I was recently interviewed for a podcast by Nino Ramirez, the editor-in-chief for the Journal of Neurophysiology, about our paper “Increased excitation-inhibition balance & loss of GABAergic synapses in the serine racemase knockout model of NMDA receptor hypofunction.” It was a fun conversation.
