Congrats to graduating JHU students Nazrawit Retta, Adrian Jimenez, and Stevenson student Naasir Albright! Naz will join Teach for America in the Fall, and Adrian will start at the JHU SOM! Naasir will take a gap year as he considers postgraduate programs.
Laurel will get to work with our amazing Associate Dean for Postdoctoral Affairs Dana Boatman.
Naz will be a science educator in Prince Georges County, MD this Fall!
We are extremely proud of our Baltimore Ingenuity Student Omobolade Odedoyin for being accepted to johns Hopkins class of 2023 and winning a full ride! #BaltimoreScholars #HometownProud #BeMore
Members of the Lauer Laboratory worked together Monday morning to carve a pumpkin for the CHB Pumpkin Decorating contest. After a grueling and competitive design brainstorming session, they agreed on Madison Weinberg’s idea to carve a microscope and a vertical cochlear cross section.

Lauer Lab members contributed multiple chapters in the SHAR's 67th volume.
"Chapter 2: Rodent Vocalizations: Adaptations to Physical, Social, and Sexual Factors" (Laurel A. Screven). This chapter explores the degree of plasticity in perception, production, and usage of vocalizations as they are related to the organization of neural structures in rodents.

"Chapter 4: Hearing in Rodents" (Laurel A. Screven). This chapter provides information on hearing abilities in rodents which will facilitate experiments on the perception of complex, natural acoustic stimuli.
Dent, ML. and Screven, LA. (2018) 'Rodent Sound Localization and Spatial Hearing', in Dent, ML. Fay, RR. Popper, AN. (eds.) Rodent Bioacoustics. Cham: Springer Nature Switzerland, pp. 71-105.
"Chapter 5: Rodent Sound Localization and Spatial Hearing" (Amanda M. Lauer, James H Engel, Katrina Schrode). This chapter reviews the cues available to rodents for successful localization and discrimination of acoustic stimuli, including interaural level, timing differences, and spectral cues.
