Rare Oregon/Massachusetts breed: high tolerance for rain AND snow.

I am here to answer critical questions about brain development and disease by analyzing vitro patch clamping recordings. From this innovative angle of study, just one neuron can provide information about homeostatic networks that last a lifetime - some stay constant, some change. I am fascinated by what determines this seemingly random, but purposeful system. I am also minoring in Statistics and enjoy calculus way, way too much.
