Yerkes researchers present at 40th Annual Society for Neuroscience Conference
Date:11/12/2010

Neuroscience researchers from the Yerkes National Primate Research Center, Emory University, will present a wide range of research topics at the Society for Neuroscience's 40th annual meeting in San Diego, Nov. 13-17, 2010. The information below is a representation of the neuroscience research Yerkes scientists will be discussing. To learn more about ongoing research and scientific resources available at the Yerkes Research Center and the other seven national primate research centers, please visit exhibit booth 3817.

The Yerkes Research Center is sponsoring a Meet the Expert session on Brain, Behavior and Evolution featuring George Paxinos of Prince of Wales Medical Research Institute and The University of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia. This session is Saturday, Nov. 13, 9 a.m. 10:30 a.m.

Larry Young, PhD, studies the genetic and neurobiological mechanisms underlying complex social behaviors, including social bonding and social attachments. Dr. Young is most well known for his research examining the mechanisms underlying pair bond formation in monogamous prairie voles. His studies have highlighted the roles of oxytocin and vasopressin in regulating social behavior. This work has important implications for psychiatric disorders characterized by disruption in social cognition, including autism spectrum disorders and schizophrenia.

  • Young will participate in a news conference, "Oxytocin: It's More Than the Love Hormone," Sunday, Nov. 14, at 9 a.m.
  • Young will give a special lecture titled "Neurobiology of Social Bonding and Monogamy: Implications for Autism Spectrum Disorders," Wednesday, Nov. 17, 8:30 a.m.- 9:40 a.m.
  • Young lab poster presentations Sunday, Nov. 14: Meera Modi, 11 a.m. noon; James Burkett, 2 p.m. 3 p.m.; Monday, Nov. 15: Catharine Barrett, 10 a.m. 11 a.m.; Kiyoshi Inoue PhD, 10 a.m. 11 a.m.; Alaine Keebaugh, PhD, 1 p.m. 2 p.m.
