Event Details

ABOUT THE LECTURE

Fear, aggression, pleasure, stress. How we are feeling shapes our behavior in surprising ways. At Scripps Research, Professor Lisa Stowers, PhD, is exploring one of the biggest mysteries of neuroscience—how the brain creates and responds to emotions—with a special focus on how stress and pleasure alter our social interactions. Stowers is in the midst of a major research project, supported by the National Institutes of Health’s BRAIN Initiative, to create the first-ever model of a complete brain circuit for social behavior. The resulting knowledge will hold unquestionable value for the scientific community and fuel additional discovery that will benefit human health, much like the first genome sequence did.


ABOUT THE SPEAKER
Lisa Stowers, PhD
Professor, Department of Neuroscience
Scripps Research

Lisa Stowers received her doctorate in Molecular and Cellular Biology from Harvard University in 1997, where she used a molecular genetic approach to study the neurobiology of mouse behavior. Since then, her research has focused on how neurons detect and respond to pheromones. As a professor at Scripps Research, her lab has shown how pheromones and other chemical cues in mice influence male-male aggression, pup-suckling, interspecies fear, female reproductive behavior and scent marking.

 

ABOUT THE FRONT ROW
World-renowned scientists from Scripps Research step out of the lab and into the auditorium to share snapshots of their pioneering explorations with the public. Learn what makes a molecule lefthanded and why odors rewire the brain. Get a sneak peek at novel medicines headed toward the clinic. Each fascinating and informative talk will lead you to the edge of science and inch you to the edge of your seat.
