Dr Frederick Publishes on Brain Oscillations

July 20, 2016

Dr Frederick published work from his dissertation today in The Journal of Neuroscience that looked at neural oscillations in olfactory tasks in rats. From the significance statement to the paper, "Olfactory system gamma (40–110 Hz) and beta (15–35 Hz) oscillations of the local field potential indicate different neural firing statistics and functional circuits. We show that gamma and beta oscillations occur in stereotyped sequence during odor sampling in associative tasks, with local gamma dominating the first 250 ms of odor sniffing, followed by systemwide beta as behavioral responses are Read more about Dr Frederick Publishes on Brain Oscillations

Professor VanderWeele Publishes on Depression and Religious Service Attendence

July 8, 2016

Professor VanderWeele and colleagues published a new article on religious attendance and depression. They show that women who frequently attended religious services, compared to those who never, had a lower risk of subsequent depression. However, it was also the case that women who were depressed were subsequently more likely to cease attending service. By using data over time the paper provided evidence for effects in both directions.
