Speaker: Dr. Corrie Brown, DVM, PhD, DACVP, Josiah Meigs and University Distinguished Professor

There are 1 billion smallholders in the world, and these are defined as those people who depend on their few livestock for survival. Their animals are considered mobile bank accounts, and sales of meat, eggs, and milk provide necessary cash to help support periodic expenses such as school fees and medical treatments. They also supply important micronutrients for children and pregnant women, helping to ensure adequate brain development and avoid cognitive stunting. When a disease enters these smallholders’ small flocks or herds, the economic and nutritional impacts are devastating.

Yong-Kyu Kim, PhD

Roles of Neuropeptide Y and Dopamine Systems in Loser Mentality and Long-lasting Depressive-like Behaviors in Male Drosophila

Dr. Yong-Kyu Kim’s research investigates behavior genetics, evolutionary biology and
neuroscience, and includes pre- and post-mating isolation mechanisms in speciation, mate
choice and offspring viability, and social learning and memory. Studies on social
experience in Drosophila behaviors have extended his research to human behaviors such
as aggression that is prevalent among animals, including fruit flies, and he has
investigated the consequences of fighting experience, especially losing fights on the
expression of internal state and behavior, as well as its neural circuits in Drosophila. Dr.
Kim has played major roles for the proposed research by designing and performing
experiments, and by supervising lab personnel, including undergraduates participated in
the projects. In addition, he successfully collaborated with other researchers and produced
several peer-reviewed publications from each project

Branson Byers, from the Lauderdale lab,  will be presenting “Two’s company, three (or more) is a simplex: Algebraic-topological tools for understanding higher-order structure in neural data.” Branson will focus on the concepts, figures, and usefulness of the techniques introduced in the first six pages, and reference the more technical second half as needed. He will also give an introduction to the relevant mathematics as part of his introduction.
