This event will be held via Zoom.  "Elucidating the role of the medial prefrontal cortex in social dominance" Monday, October 18, 2021 4:45 p.m. "Most social species, from insects to humans, organize into social dominance hierarchies to decrease aggression, conserve energy, and maximize survival for the group. Individuals must consider their social rank in any social encounter and adjust their behavior accordingly. Despite social and dominance behaviors being critical for successful interactions with other group members, it is unclear how the brain encodes social rank.  By combining novel behavioral assays, wireless electrophysiology, optogenetics and machine learning, our research shows that a prefrontal-hypothalamic circuit encodes and modulates social dominance in mice."
