At 4 p.m., Monday, February 8, Dr. Deanne Buffalari, assistant professor of psychology, will give the opening lecture for the Neuroscience Speaker Series at Slippery Rock University.
Her talk titled "Studying Stimulus Interactions In Laboratory Rats” will be a great opportunity for Buffalari to present her own work, but also work that she has done in collaboration with undergraduate students at Westminster.
In her classes, she provides hands-on opportunities for students to study how different stimuli, including drugs, food, hormones, and more, interact to effect behavior in the laboratory.
This work has relevance to a number of public health issues including addiction, obesity, and other mental illness.
