The language of young neuroscientists from many foreigners has been investigating the "fear-lab" of Puerto Rico's two-decade-old science-based researcher at the National Health Institute of Navarre. One of the goals for the disappearance investigation of the fear, the lab has published 80 publications, starting with certain newspapers from Puerto Rico and creating over 2,000 cycles per year. 130 young people trained in the laboratory, 90% are from Puerto Rico and Latin America and half are women.
"Like most laboratories, the key has been key at the newspapers, laboratories, weekly and scientific references philosophy," said Laboratory Managing Director Gregory Quirk, Ph.D. "In truth, these four activities develop logic, communication and intellectual learning capabilities, as well as building group cohesion."
After completing a postdoctoral fellowship from the New York University of New York, Joseph LeDoux, Ph.D., quirk under the famous scary researcher, in 1997 Ponce Health Sciences University, Ponce, Puerto Rico. A decade later, the University of San Juan School of Medicine went to the current situation of the University, adding some human and non-primed studies.
Quirk advises her on the findings of her discovery of a "discovery track off" publication of an article to find findings and mentoring on Jan. 30, 2018 Journal of Neuroscience. It marks two decades from the publication of the magazine's first magazine, that is to say, the prevention of the ventral medial cortex (fear loss) was necessary to strengthen the memory of rodents.
Shortly afterwards, when the team announced news, when they found "clear all" signals of the infralimbic acceleration of the brain when imitated with electrical stimulation, when they were conditioned by rats. Since then, laboratories have been a pioneer in transcriptional learning, with the disappearance of learning experiences by diverting mental illnesses.
For example, in 2015, they reviewed a review of the importance of post-traumatic pest extinction (PTSD) – fear an old memory reminded one of the brain's path, since it was freshly remembered.
"Recently, my laboratory has studied the use of active operation, obsessive-compulsive disorder and brain stimulation, optogenetics and CRISPR-Cas9 techniques," added Quirk.
NIH's National Mental Health Institute (NIMH) has received support as a key success in the laboratory. For example, the first NIMH prize was renewed four times. The Laboratory was also the President of Puerto Rico for the Early Career Prize and the MERIT Prize.
"The other grants for the" Puerto Rico-based "concept P50 subaward, the Independence Prize path (K99-R00) my postdoc, and the Dissertation Completion Awards (R36) were for my graduate students, all financed by the NIMH," said Quirk.
The Quirk's report includes comments by former practitioners to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the laboratory during the last meeting. For example, "After years of JClub, you were never happy with rigor", former Ph.D. students commented on mandatory magazines in the laboratory.
Seminary sessions that began with a guided meditation and "appreciation" established a tone that promotes a cooperative culture, said Quirk. If you take part in a practice rendition, you know and guides what each person is doing / doing in the laboratory.
"It was impressive when Quirk Lab presented its portfolio of other members without the participation of the study: the laboratory meetings all other members became project advocates," said the former student.
Lab groups are encouraged to overcome the mercy of society and asking each other, Quirk said. The high standard is expected in written communication. A "Six-Eyed Rule" tells us that manuscripts should be criticized by three external readers for the newspaper.
"You think you are writing the brain," he said.
Quirk's love for "Face Time": a sudden solo encounter was created with students. "This was a rigorous presentation of my data and Greg reminded me of the importance of my project," said a current post-doc.
For three days in the winter, the laboratory uses university funds for the Rehabilitation of Philosophy for the Head of the Mountains. "Instead of discussing data, we are looking at the philosophical issues that define the idea of retirement as a scientist, and we approach scientific questions," explains Quirk.
"Retirement was based on the security of other people," said the current graduate student. Every grade student or doctorate has two or four degree tutors.
The director of NIMH, Director of the NIMH, Joshua A Gordon, MD, Ph.D., in the latest NIMH director, Spotlighting Fright in Laboratory Practitioners, wrote: "Dr. Quirk has long been an Assistant and Effective Assistant at NIMH in Neuroscience Careers He is preparing a large number of undergraduate and postgraduate students ".
