Dr. Sternson is JFRC Group Leader at Janelia Farm. Dr. Sternson focuses on the hypothalamus. His goal is to integrate his knowledge of these neurons, so that he can map the intricate hypothalamic circuitry. While he will approach his studies by targeting groups of neurons that he suspects control a specific behavior, he thinks his work can also help reveal those cells' roles in other behaviors. Dr. Sternson's host is Spencer Smith.

 

The title of his seminar will be:
