uOBMRI in the News: Recent findings from Dr. Nafissa Ismail’s lab suggest that adult males display more sickness symptoms
The NISE (Neuroimmunology, Stress and Endocrinology) Lab is investigating the neurochemical mechanisms underlying the interaction between exposure to an immune challenge and gonadal hormones during the prenatal and pubertal periods on brain functioning and behavior. Recent findings from Nafissa Ismail’s lab suggest that adult males display more sickness symptoms, greater changes in body temperature and take longer to recover compared to females following the same infection.
Drs. Len Maler & André Longtin win the NSERC's Brockhouse Canada Prize for Interdisciplinary Research in Science and Engineering
André Longtin and Leonard Maler have combined their expertise in physics, mathematics and neurobiology to uncover the neural code that underlies the operation of the brain. The University of Ottawa researchers use electric fish to trace the journey of signals as they move through the entire sensory process, observing the hidden traits of brain activity in moments of focus. Their research expands our understanding of neuroscience and benefits the development of artificial intelligence and treatments for neurological disorders. Dr. Longtin and Dr. Maler won NSERC's Brockhouse Canada Prize for Interdisciplinary Research in Science and Engineering in 2017.
