Assistant Professor Shay Stern

Stern Lab Summer Project

The Stern lab is interested in studying two fundamental questions in neuroscience and biology.
First, what are the underlying molecular and neuronal mechanisms that regulate long-term behavioral patterns across different stages of life? And second, what are the biological and environmental processes that generate and maintain variation in behavioral patterns among individuals? To answer these questions we are taking an inter-disciplinary approach,
combining molecular, cellular and behavioral measurements with novel computational approaches.

During the summer project, we invite you to choose one of the following areas :
1. Studying neuronal gene-expressions differences underlying behavioral variation among individuals.
2. Effects of early-life experiences on developmental patterns of behavior.
3. Studying ‘Time neurons’ for synchronizing development time with behavior.
