Lake Forest College is proud to announce the line up for the 10th annual Current Advances in Psychology (CAP) Colloquia Series. In celebration of the interdisciplinary nature of psychology, a trio of talks has been planned for this fall and another in the spring.
Daryn Cass ’10 is credited as the first author in the article, “CB1 cannabinoid receptor stimulation during adolescence impairs the maturation of GABA function in the adult rat prefrontal cortex,” published in May by the scientific research journal Molecular Psychiatry.
Professor of Biology Karen Kirk’s research was recently published in PLOS ONE, a reputable peer-reviewed scientific journal published by the Public Library of Science. The article, “Novel Telomere-Anchored PCR Approach for Studying Sexual Stage Telomeres in Aspergillus nidulans,” was co-authored by several Lake Forest students who have since gone on to successful post-college careers including a PhD program at Northwestern University and various medical schools.
