Yesterday the lab got to have an in-person autumn kickoff. Really nice to see each other in person again!
Yafeng Pan gave a presentation at the Virtual European Meeting of Human Fear Conditioning 2021, titled A multi-brain mechanism for observational threat learning. Have a listen:
Our lab meetings continue online. At our last lab meeting we discussed a new exciting VR paradigm currently being developed in the lab.
With vaccinations underway, hopefully we can soon meet in person again. Until then, our weekly lab meetings will continue to be held online.
Remote game night with the group for this semester’s social activity.
Although we would rather be able to meet in person, our remote lab meetings will have to suffice for now.
After a long spring and summer apart, we could finally meet up on campus for some beer and games.
When the environment changes, we adapt. Weekly lab meetings continue as usual, only with physical distancing.
