Behavioral brain circuits focus of First Friday Seminar in September
OSU Center for Health Sciences will host neuroscience researcher Arshad M. Khan, Ph.D., on Friday, Sept. 6 at noon in D-107 for the First Friday Seminar.
Khan, assistant professor in the Department of Biological Sciences at the University of Texas at El Paso, will present, “What's so spatial about behavioral control circuits in the mammalian brain?” The lecture will focus on the complexity of mapping circuits in the brain, specifically circuits that control appetite and metabolism.
As director of the UTEP Systems Neuroscience Laboratory, Khan studies the neural systems and has begun creating a theoretical and practical framework for describing feeding control circuits in the hypothalamus of the rodent brain.
The event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be provided at 11:45 a.m.
