Lauer Lab Members Publish in the SHAR

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. 

Okanoya, K. and Screven, LA. (2018) 'Rodent Vocalizations: Adaptations to Physical, Social, and Sexual Factors', in Dent, ML. Fay, RR. Popper, AN. (eds.) Rodent Bioacoustics. Cham: Springer Nature Switzerland, pp. 13-41.

 

"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.

July News Update

Summer students presented their work at JHU CARES: http://hopkins-cares.med.jhmi.edu/

Departing postdoc Kat Schrode's paper was accepted by eNeuro: http://www.eneuro.org/content/early/2018/07/26/ENEURO.0250-18.2018

Postdoc Laurel Screven and Research Technologist Madison Weinberg join the lab.

Dr. Lauer participated as course faculty in the Audiology Workshop on Hearing Disorders & Evaluation in the Com Dis department at the University at Buffalo

So much news for May!

Dillan Villavisanis & Mark Scotto di Vetta graduated with bachelor's degrees, James Engel graduated with a masters degree, Dillan won the James West Fellowship from the Acoustical Society of America (and in April won the ASA DC chapter 2nd place Student Presentation Award), incoming postdoc Laurel Screven successfully defended her thesis, and two of Dr. Lauer's R01 grants were funded. Also, we are looking forward to having Naz (JHU STAR award winner), Omo, and new students Garrett Brown and Erin Young join us for summer research. Congratulations to everyone! Well done! Time for a little vacation...
