Neuroscience Singapore 2023 saw 30 early career presenters in the afternoon poster session on Dec 5th. A panel of 12 neuroscientists including group leaders and postdocs judged the top posters for awards. They are as follows:
Royston Long “Complex effects of age, sex, and Alzheimer’s Disease on hippocampal spatial coding”
Yi Ning Leow “Pulvinar-Prefrontal inputs facilitate adaptive updating during visual decision-making under uncertainty”
Hui Min Tan “Spatial memory in individual and populations of neurons of the non-human primate hippocampus”
Joshua Raine “Zebrafish – The Responsible Drinkers”
Loke Yng Miin “Sleep health associates with depression symptoms and grades in adolescents and university students”
Lie Wen “Role of Gut Microbes and Metabolites in Regulating Dietary Intake and Energy Balance”
Gao Xiang Ham “Investigating the Role of Parent-Offspring Interactions on Early Social Learning Using Dyadic Optogenetics”
Additionally, symposium participants voted for their favorite posters. The winner and runner-up were:
Tanisha Goel “Zebrafish models to investigate the neurogenetics of multi-substance dependence and other co-morbid disorders”
Nicole Lim “Cell-tethered drugs in a Drosophila model to analyze circuit function” respectively.
Short talks were also selected from abstracts, and the audience voted for their favorite at the end of the session. While the competition was tight, the overall winner was Maxine Lam who presented on “Studying tumor microenvironment and spatial heterogeneity on temozolomide resistance with a micro-physiological in vitro model of the blood-brain barrier and glioblastoma”
SfN.SG would like to congratulate all awardees for their excellent work!
